Wanna' thank everyone for the help.

Now all I gotta do is put this together and make it purty. 

It really is a nice car and I hate like sin to sell it. 
But, I can't afford two cars at this time in my life and the Cougar is only my second favorite car!

THANKS AGAIN!

Wired everything as diagrammed on my desk. Without installing, how should I test the system?

I DID combine the two grounds (Post 4 & 7) with the lead to be tapped into the dimmer switch (Post 8) using the ground from my charger.

I attached the positive lead (Post 3) to my 30 amp breaker and out to the positive on my charger.

Lastly, I touched the leads to the actuator (Post 1 & 2) to the actuator wires themselves and activated the piston. Switching the leads around caused the piston to move in the opposite direction.

Is there a way to simulate the switching from one direction to the other through the relay without actually tapping the #8 lead to the dimmer switch?

Thanks in advance...AGAIN!

if wired like I showed, all you do is provide 12v to pin 8 and it will operate motors, then when you remove power it will reverse.
4 and 7 are grounds not to be combined with 8 which is switched 12v

I would guess you see that 3 is constant 12v and is also linked to 6 so 3 and 6 are same 12v constant, also 4 and 5 are linked and are ground
