Wire diagram for fuel shutoff...help

I was wondering if somebody smarter than me could draw up or explain how to wire this shutoff up in my 1981 chevy. I could use help with where to tap into for power, where to put the relays (if I even need any) ect. At $200 each I dont want to take a chance of burning one up. Thanks,

Use a 70 amp automotive relay, less than $10 from Allied Catalog Page Number 1075 . The 70 amp (235-0510) is the one you want. The relay is for the white wire which is the pull on coil. You will need a fuse or the blue wire fuseable link (see LarryB's web site for that). The source is the battery. Trigger is ignition start.

Connect the red wire to ignition start-run.

If you want me to scan the service manual page with the wireing diagram for you, email me at jgeorge1@suddenlink.net .

There is a little bit of confusion in the diagram you should know for your Chevy. The colors on the fuel solenoid in the diagram are for the wires to the harness connector that is not shown. They do not match the wire colors on the fuel solenoid side of the connector.

On mine, I used the same wiring diagram illflem posted, I wired the "pull" side directly to the starter solenoid wire, on my truck ('84) wire is purple, 10ga I believe. The "hold side, I wired it to a fused "hot when the key is on". Hope this helps. I know they mentioned about a relay, so far no problem with not using one, when I first had it done the starter would "stick on" I thought I had fried my ignition switch, turned out to be bad starter contacts/sticky starter solenoid. Works great now :thumbsup Also ShortBedCrew, thank you for sending the photos of your truck :thumbsup nice, it looks a lot like mine, when I get a chance I will take some photos, and send them to you, other than yours being a short bed, they are identical.
