What is the least I need to wire up to make my 4 cyc diesel run?

I recently installed 79 4 cyc. diesel out of a 240d in my 57 willys offroad vehicle.I have saved the wiring harness but I am going to cut it apart and save what I need and pitch the rest.I have a general idea of what I need but I just want to be sure.Email or reply Thanks.

Battery hook-up to the starter and a starting switch powered to term 50 on the solenoid.

Having the alternator wired would benefit the battery.

How bout some power to the glow plugs. You could come up with a simple pushbutton set-up and as long as you are holding the button down they glow plugs are energized. Let off of it after it starts.

Aren't the 79's fuel cutoff governor vacuum powered? He'll need for that to operate correctly as well.

I'd guess a '79 has a mechanical oil gauge, but does it have a mechanical water temp gauge or an electric? If electric that's another connection.

Temp gauge

Thats a good question about the temp gauge I could change it to mechanical if it is electric but I don't know where it is.The engine has two big sensors(I think)For coolant on the dr. side right under the glow plugs are these it?

Well, if you don't have a capillary tube, or the reminants of one, coming off the block, then I'd guess you have an electric temp gauge. No idea where the sender would be mounted on your engine though.
