Re: Engine only runs when key held in start position
On a '67, the OE yellow wire from solenoid R terminal goes to the coil + terminal for easier hot engine starting as the ign switch has no provisions for ign voltage in the START position.
Yes, there should be IGN voltage in IGN position. You can find it where it goes, or doesn't go by using the violtage method and car battery, you can even externally charge the battery while troubleshooting, be sure to disconnect the coil - terminal preventing current draw if point set is closed, or, disconnect the battery and use the ohmmeter for tracing the circuit from, an easy point, alternator BATT stud to coil + terminal.
Generally, I find the ign swich needs replacement on these older cars. How mwnay times has it been started in its 40+ year life?
You can buy just the electrical portion of the switch and keep the existing tumbler.
