    Well after doing the work we did and we couldnt get it going we took it to a mechanic. he cant find the problem. he tried a third solenoid and it still wont work so he needs a wiring diagram for the vehicle so he can check out the wiring.

    it started a few times after the tune up and then it stopped. so i had the starter tested it was bad so i got a new one and a solenoid.

Well you have several options you can go to a dealship and have them copy the diagram for you(i do this all the time) or you can purchase a repair manual at Napa or Oreilly's for around 20 bucks. it has diagrams and schematics in it. it also has alot of instructions in it so you can do repairs yourself. By the way i'm surprised that the mechanic doesn't have these diagrams himself. I was wandering why it won't start after you changed the plugs and wires could it be that maybe the firing order is wrong. i've done that myself a time or 2. double check the the plug wires to make sure they are in the right spot. if the problem is it won't crank. chances are you have a loose ground. please rate this..thanks

    it sound to me to be a bad ground some were close to the motor, usaully its easyly solved by grounding the motor to the main frame, i have a 1984 amc eagle stationwagon and that was my problem , fusable links go one way,if the ground is lost or broke or rusted it well reverse the electricity....positive well be negative, negative well be positive, find the bad ground and solve your problem,,good luck.

WE have a 1984 AMC eagle with 258 six engine when we move the leaver over to 4x4 it's not going in four wheel drive, and diagrams or advice would be great. ...

well what was told is that my1984 eagle stationwagon, that if the 4x4 does not engage it is due to vacuum lines from the motor and the trany. these lines dry out and crack and vibration causes them to crack and the tight spots there in does not let you see or fix them to easy.
