for an '84 p/u, or 4Runner. Especially the ignition switch, also ignition system. If anyone has this or can point me in the right direction, it would be appreciated.
Thanks, Broderick

I'm putting an '84 2WD cab on my '83 4WD frame and adding a tilt-wheel column from an '80 4WD, and I need to interface this to
my 231 V6. The wiring is a little different from the '83.

All i could find was a wiriing diagram for an EFI turbo motor harness only, i suggest going to your local library and most likely find what you need there..

what is it that you are tying to match up?
which is the primary harness, secondary etc
and also it is questionable about whether that tilt will work also.

i know when we had the buick, there were only slight mods to my 79 harness, i think in the alternator part.

and also, if you are using the 84 harness with the early cab and ignition switch.
i found the late harness had a bouple more wires, than could plug into the early switch, luckily i was able to just reroute two to an aux. switch. it pretty much acts like an on/off.
if that was your issue let me know and i can give details

The main problem is that the 84 ignition switch module won't fit into the hole on the 80? tilt column, and yes, it has more wires than one in the tilt originally. The control pod (lights, blinkers, etc.) was easy, I just swapped it from the 84 to the tilt.

I have several different ign sw modules, all different years with different wire configurations, but correct size to fit hole in tilt column.

I have the wiring diagram for only the 83 from the rusted cab I'm replacing. I've pretty much mapped out the 84 switch with my DVM, but if I had an 84 diagram to compare to the 83 diagram, I'd have it perfect in a minute.

I use a GM self-exciting alternator so I don't have to worry about that.

I can figure out the ignition/coil wiring by comparing it to what I did with the old 83 cab, but again an 84 wiring diagram would make it easier and faster. (It's been about 15 yrs since I did this swap in the 83).

There are some other minor issues to be addressed that the diagram would also be helpful for.

So if anyone has an 84 wiring diagram they could send/fax/email I'd be greatful.

Thanks, Broderick

That would probably do for my needs.
If there is some way I can get a copy I would be greatful.

Thanks Broderick

do you have a haynes manual?
thats where i got all my info.
what i ended up doing is wiring everything how it compared in the two, and like i said i had that one circut left over. i just ran it to another switch.
i can scan the haynes, or my factory wiring later if you like so as to show what goes where.
but if you have a hwynes at least you should be able to find it.

YOUR BEST BET WOULD BE TO STRIP ALL OF THE WIRING HARNESS OUT OF THE CAB YOU ALL READY HAVE AND PUT IT IN THE NEW CAB.
SOME OF THE WIRING WORKS THE FOUR WHEEL DRIVE LIGHT,ETC.
AFTER THAT SPLICE INTO THE WIRING FOR THE ALTERNATOR AND SUCH
IT CAN BE DONE,I JUST TOOK AN 84 CAB THAT HAD THE BUICK V6 IN IT AND IT STILL HAD THE STOCK ALT.,AND POWER STEERING HOOKED UP TO THE V6.
I USED THE CAB ON MY DIESEL TRUCK AND HAD TO CHANGE ALL OF THE WIRING

Thanks. What I really need is what circiuts AM1&2, IG1&2, ST1&2, etc go to. It appears in the 2nd figure the switch is double pole multi-position, in the OFF position. The IG2 position may be RUN, while the ST1/IG2 position may be START, and ACC position not shown? Anyway with the rest of the diagram I can tell what's what and which can be tied together (for example maybe AM1 + AM2 to be used with a switch that has only AM1).
If you can post/fax/email the rest of the circuits I'd appreciate it.
I will try to find someone who sells the Haynes manual. I have 2 multi-year Chiltons but they have no schematics.
Thanks Broderick
