Hi

Super not running. No spark at any plugs. Tested fuse box with circuit tester. Power to 5 right hand fuses (lights and all the bits which don't affect the internal combustion side of things). Nothing to remaining (ignition etc).

I am a bit lost when it comes to the dark art of auto electrics. Any suggested causes or things I should check would be welcomed. Keen to hit the road again.

thanks in advance.

You have power on the + side of the coil with the key on? If not it won't run. Another test, hook a test light up to the - side of the coil, crank engine. Light go on and off? If not, won't run.

Thanks for your input, turned out to be multiple issues starting with poor fuse connection, dodgy distributor and a couple of knackered leads. Just about to install 123 distributor and new leads so hopefully all will be sorted

I have a wiring diagram for a US '66 Super if you'd like it.

Contact me by email if you'd like me to send it (email is: my handle @ gmail)
