Each of these are top quality and provide a much simpler method of connecting your wiring. The instructions states to connect it to the ignition switch. My husband will start poking at me about it occasionally because he seems to enjoy doing that, but, nobody else does. Any idea what we're missing? Tested the resistor wire per your direction and we're getting 12V at the coil. The tachometer is not hard to locate. Since everything died at once, the way to figure out what happened would be to start at the black wire with a yellow stripe that is attached to same post on the starter solenoid as the positive battery cable and follow that in stages with a volt meter to find out where the power is stopping. About a month ago it got to where it would not crank.
I need some help from a wiring guru on a 66 convertible, standard interior. It could be that the coil that wasn't working right has died on you,but, I really couldn't say anything for sure without having the car sitting right in front of me. It will turn over and crank but when you release the key it will die. I will let you know next week what I came up with. I have read a couple of other forums and blogs, but wanted to ask because you seem the most informative. At the bottom of this internet site there is also a 66 Mustang Vacuum Diagram picture gallery, if the photo over is inadequate for you.
If it does show power, then the problem is inside the car, behind the dash. Anyway, much easier to remove and to install by going from above. Let me know what you find out. It runs great but will stumble periodically. The photo to the right shows the complete harness disassembled and rerouted to it's final configuration. Also, while the key is in start position the post doesn't have any power.

Check those things and let me know what you discover. This wire is plugged into a red wire with a green stripe that comes out of the ignition switch. What I'm left with is the back of the switch with all the wires attached , a plastic piece that the cylinder connects to, and two springs. I have this diagram but I cannot read from it what I am looking for. It tests at about 1.
Also, pay attention to the , as there are wires which are not on the table but must be run in conjuction with the harness layout. However, typically in these situations the aforementioned Previous Owner has thrown away all of the paperwork years ago. Each wire was inspected for cracks, frays, nicks, burns, or any other damage. I have become quite baffled by the problem. Looks like the switch you have is a bit different read: more universal that the original on in the drawings.
I always kept the points and condensor in the glove box for 'just in case', so, I just went ahead and put the points back in. Password Please enter a password for your user account. If, when you try to start the car, it just cranks and cranks and never fires, the problem I just described is far more likely to be your problem. I am running a rebuilt motor and also have electronic, not points I will check the resistor wire, but how would I do so? I have a66 that was running. I am not getting a spark at the plugs. That should be something in the 6 to 8 volt range.
Purchase Product Here: If you're having starting issues or your 1965-1966 Mustang shuts off while driving, you might be able to fix this problem by replacing the ignition switch. Last summer I had to fix a Mustang which had the coil and solenoid wired wrong by a Ford dealer. Engin looked great but still had the problem. I purchased a new coil with no change. After a couple days it died and was doing the same thing when I would try to start it. My emergency flasher switch and flasher see attached photo has the four wires riveted into the back of the switch and it has its own harness that plugs into the steering column and then to the main harness. After seeing Capt Dan's photo, the rubber connector and two spade wires must be for the emergency flasher.
Taking the time to fix now will save time later. The video did state it would take roughly an hour or so to install and he was right. Hi All, I am completely rewiring my 1966 convertible as the prior owner shorted the harness and it fried wires from the ignition switch all the way through the engine compartment. Check out of the same concept. The pink wire is the power to the coil, and you can just start the engine at the solenoid under the hood.
