1969 Camaro no power

Turn ignition key and generator light and fan come on but when I attempt to start vehicle loses all power (no lights, no power to anything). Once this happens, there is no power at all while tuning the key. Trying to jump start the vehicle does not work as the car does not have power. Any ideas would be appreciated.

Sounds like a loose ground or power wire connection to battery or starter. Might have someone look under hood in the dark for spark while you turn the key.

Mostly Camaros and FINALLY a Double Nickel

Clean battery clamps and posts. Then clean the two red wires on the buss bar of horn relay under external voltage regulator, and maybe place both red wires onto the same screw.

Re: 1969 Camaro no power

Thanks gentlemen for the responses. I ended replacing the positive terminal battery clamp and it started right up. Noticed the carburetor is leaking fuel at the top of each bowl around the screws. Noticed there are no gaskets, which is odd. Iím off to research this item. Thanks again for your help.
