I have been troubleshooting some starting issues with my 318 and I just want to rule out the possibility that I installed the starter improvement kit incorrectly. I recently purchased it and installed it after I began having starting issues but it did not help. The instructions that come with the kit are very difficult to visualize so I just wanted to be sure I installed it properly.

Looking at the attached pictures, does it appear that I installed it correctly?

TR, Looking at your pic, I really can't tell! The red & black look correct, but it's possible you've got the purples wrong.

Disconnect both purple wires and check them for continuity to ground. One should show continuity...this goes to your existing purple... and the other should be open/no continuity...this one goes to your starter solenoid. Bob

Thanks for that schematic. I was able to get my 318 started with this setup in my original post. I did have to move the harness onto the inside of the frame rail as the body panel wouldn't clear it. Just an FYI incase someone down the road searches this subject and comes across this post.
