ok- 69 Camaro, non-guage, 327, 2BBl, Powerglide- 3 lead alternator, points.
few months back had electrical fire- replaced engine and headlight harnesses, regulator, horn relay, battery, battery leads, ignition switch, reran wires burnt under dash- 12 Red and 12 pink.
car will turn over with ignition switch but will never run. car can be started with lead between + battery and + coil.
i cannot figure out how to get this thing started normally. have tried and traced everything.
one additional question: will the car start if there is a problem in alternator? i had it bench tested and it was charging but some other test they performed failed (stator?). the shop put a new alt on the tester and got the same result. so they said mine was fine and their machine was acting up. would a faulty alt not allow me to start the car?
any help or ideas would be greatly appreciated as i just don't know where to go now.
