Any hints?

Bought all new wiring for my 68 and have plugged it all in and am not getting power on the primary side for my instrument lighting. I have the old harness that I have been using to troubleshoot it but I have not been able to solve this. I did use a a re-built alternator with an internal voltage regulator so there is nothing plugged into the voltage regulator on the front rad support.

I am at a total loss as to why I have not power on that circuit...any ideas?

Thanks

Steve

Re: Any hints?

Are you sure it's not a ground problem? There are two grounds for the instrument cluster (on a 68, anyway). One is the center screw for the cluster housing, and the other is a ground wire to the steering column.

Checked grounds all in place...but...I should have power at the fuse regardless of grounds.

Re: Any hints?

Just some random thoughts: if you converted to internal regulator. some of the wires that went to the regulator need to be jumpered, or connected in another fashion. was this done?

Do you have power to the junction block behind the battery and to the horn relay?

Double check the circuit with a test light to find a bad connection?

Re: Any hints?

The power for the dash lamps starts in the headlight switch, thru the reostat, then back to the fuseboc, thru the LPS fuse and out the gray wire.

Do you have power to the LPS fuse?

Re: Any hints?

I do not have anything jumpered at the connedtion that would have plugged into the voltage regulator. The junction block behind the battery does have power.

Jim, I do not have power to the fuse, it appears that the circuit is fed from a green wire (I unscrewed and checked the connections on the back of the fuse block) travels through the fuse and out on the grey...I think. I have been trying to find out where that circuit picks up power.

Thanks for the help.
