Well, I pulled the MSD distributor out and put the HEI back in and disconnected all the MSD stuff. Hooked the battery cable to the big battery post on the starter, hooked the purple wire to the solenoid, and hooked a wire from the battery post on the starter to the BATT connector on the HEI and still have nothing. No power to any lights, fan, etc. key on, off, or start. I have no clue where the problem lies.
I've never had any starting/electrical problems before I pulled the 454 out. I did mount the battery in the trunk and have the + cable running along the underside directly to the battery terminal on the starter.
I'm apparently no rocket scientist when it comes to electrical, but what makes the dome light, headlights, etc. work? I'm completely exhausted, mentally and physically, haven't even slept yet and I'm completely out of ideas.
Anyone with any guidance, please let me know what you think about this and what I need to do to get her fired up.
Thanks in advance for any and all replies
