I just rebuilt the 289 on my 65 Coupe and swapped in a T5 from a C4. Engine started w/ the ignition switch prior to the rebuild / swap. Car wouldn't start after install so I hard wired the + side of the coil to the + on the battery and crossed over the ignition switch w/ a pair of pliers to get is started. Completed break in and now I need to resolve the wiring issue.
I figured the 47 year old wiring harness was shot, so I bought a new one and installed it and no start. Solenoid is good, tested, and recently replaced. I have done nothing with the neutral safety switch? My neutral safety wiring has 4 wires and 2 plugs and I have jumped it over every combo and it does nothing. How do these wires need jumped to start?
I reviewed the wiring digram in the below link and it only has 2 wires for the neutral safety switch?
Also FYI, the starter will crank w/ the coil + side disconnected and in the on position of the keyed switch (not the crank position, the on position). I'm hoping this is a neutral safety switch issue?
Thanks in advance!
