Here's the info I found on wiring...the alternate schematic shown
towards the bottom of the page looks similar to the one you linked:
To be honest, I haven't had the time to actually nose around in it much.
I've got the pumpkin, 70 series long side shaft, a '78 axle to rebuild
and put it in, but that's where it sits. I think I'm waiting on getting
funds together for Longfields and a knuckle rebuild.
Out of curiosity, anybody know how difficult it is to convert an elocker
to cable? Doesn't seem like it should be too difficult, but I've said
that before. :)

I do not have nearly as much experience as you guys do running an
as I just installed mine this winter, but it wasn't too difficult to
up, nor was it difficult to clean the actuator and it works perfectly
with unknown mileage. It's the 9.5" e-locker ( rear ) out of a FZJ80
installed in my FF 60 rear axle. I used a DPDT switch from 12 Volt Guy
the wiring diagram from inchworm:
In my research prior to installation, I did not read much about
problems with the lockers, only the splines twisting on the long spline
and preventing the locker from disengaging. It definitely seems that an
is 'better' than the e-locker because of that spline issue.
One thing to note, when wiring up the e-locker without the stock
you can engage the locker at any speed, which could be disastrous. I
make sure to tell the passengers not to touch any switches in the truck.
