I recently bought a 1967 Camaro that is not running but the body is in
great shape. The car is not getting 12v tpo the inside of the car(ignition
switch). The + battery terminal is hooked to the starter, the yellow and
purple wires are hooked to the starter and the battery is grounded to the
engine. I'm thinking the + side of the battery should connect somewhere
else too to energize the wiring harness but i'm not sure of the exact
spot....PLEASE HELP IF YOU CAN.....THANKS.....BILL
There was an extra 10 gauge wire that came off of the positive battery
cable, then went to a square bakelite block, in front of the battery. Where
it connected to another 10 gauge wire, that then went across the radiator
support, then fed the horn relay, which then to the main feed from the
wiring harness. That came from the bulkhead connector to the firewall. Then
fed the entire electrical system.
I hope this helps?
Some people eliminated the bakelite block, due to acid corrosion. Then put
in a solderless connecter crimped in, but look for the connection to be near
the battery. Unless someone totally butchered it, and ran a new wire to the
Don't know for sure, but I would check:
1. Getting power to the fuse block prior to the switch?
2. Is the wiring from the starter to the fuse block in good shape?
3. Is the wiring from the fuse block to switch in good shape?
4. Does the car have a starter switch down on the steering column next to
the pedals that could be bad?
Just some thoughts. Good luck!
