    Looking to see where I can purchase the wiring harness that goes between the Distributor Pickup Coil and the Ignition Module for a 1979 CJ7 with a 304 engine?

    I have a '79 CJ7 with I6, I have been unable to find any wiring harness seperates; only the whole harness from centech, and painless. I have just rewired what I had to with my own supplied wiring from the autoparts house. The best thing I ever did for my jeep second to fuel injection was to ditch the ignition module, coil, and distributor, and replace it all with a 1 wire HEI distributor with integrated coil (basically trading Ford for Chevy electronics) Runs a whole lot better with this setup. I cut the wiring to the ignition module and ran the hot over to the new distributor and your done.

    That is junk yard, or purchase whole wiring harness. In a pinch you can crimp on the flat blade to each wire individually and at the other end crimp on the speaker connector and then plug them in individually.
