wiring question

i did actually get a painless harness. the way that it was labeled and the way that it was set-up threw me off a little.
i didnt realize they made these harnesses to be a universal fit for almost any engine thrown into a jeep. i had thought it was supposed to be a factory style set-up.

one last wire to hook up before i start checking the systems.

i had done the nutter bypass according to this diagram

the 2 grounds, 1 at distributor and one at ignition module, am i correct in understanding that they should not be spliced together (as they were originally) but should be run to my bus bars and grounded?

Re: wiring question

Yes, if you splice them together, they just run from one device to another. The wires would not be grounded. You could splice them together and run a third spliced wire to the grounding bar.

Re: wiring question

I would run a dedicated wire back to the ground system for the two grounds in question. I would not splice these two together.
