Any power on the BAT or IGN terminal on the fuseblock? Sounds like a wire didn't get hooked up when you put the front clip back on...or is it still off??

With the front lighting/generator harness disconnected, there is no power going to the ignition switch.

You'll have to run a full 12v wire to the HEI (12/14 ga.). The factory resistor wire won't work as good.
