Re: 11.6 Volts at the distributor power wire
You may be onto something. Is this switch sense the brake pedal position also. There is a switch on the column attached to the brake pedal. This is the only switch looking device I noticed on the column near the brake. One other thing I noticed. When I turn the engine over the tach is reading normal then bounces up to 2K to 3K RPM. Obviously the motor is not turning over this high. Is this normal?
With 11.6 V at the end of the wire, voltage may not be there in the START position of the key. The ign switch may have burnt contacts and replacement may be the next step. Fortunately, the switch is at the top of the column just above the brake pedal and not in the dash. Just thinking here, you might need to adjust the switch at the column to make contact when in the START position.
Usually, HEI's are infallible. To get another source of power during ign, look at the fusebox and look for the single/labelled spade IGN on the far right of the box. As I suggested before, run a wire from this IGN terminal.
