Ah! That makes sense. Ground to power blows fuses doesn’t it!

Thanks for the help! I’ll get it fixed after church tomorrow.

Sometimes the simplest stuff throws me for a loop!

Got the wires swapped around, and it will now crank over with brake lever held, but not getting spark.

It acts like a 300 does with the kill switch off. Turns over fine bit no spark.

Starts fine in Neutral. Any ideas?

Ran a jumper from battery negative to connection where 30 attaches to harness, which allowed for neutral light to come on (backfeed) and still no start.

Now I’m really confused. Still starts fine when it’s actually in Neutral

Ran a jumper from the 30 terminal to the light green wire on the CDI and that got it! Starts in gear now with the brake lever pulled.

Sorry I didn't respond earlier Jeep, I was outdoors wrenching all day! I missed that light green going to the CDI from the neutral switch yesterday. Just looked at the wiring diagram before logging on and now I feel pretty dumb... :-(

Glad ya found it and got it going though!

I had @PowerStroke70 ask me where this thread was, so here it is.

To summarize on the 300

Get your relay.

Ground wire (under frame bolt) to Foreman brake micro switch

Other side of micro switch to relay 85

Ground relay 87

12v pos switched power source to relay 86 (pink ignition wire)

Snip wire going to neutral light.

Relay 87a goes to the snipped (-) Neutral light wire which should be Light Green/Red and goes to bulb

Relay 30 connects to the snipped end of the Light Green/Red wire that goes to the solenoid (neutral light wire you snipped that goes back into the harness) AND you need to run a jumper to the green wire going to the CDI.

Been a few weeks since I did it, but I'm pretty sure that's it. @retro? That look right?

Sounds right to me Jeep... do you need the jumper wire from relay #30 to the green CDI wire on 300s? I never did one of those 300s yet.
