    In Idaho dad said spring was the day that separated too dam cold from too dam hot. Fall was the day that separated too dam hot from too dam cold.

    recently i got my 4.3 chevy powered pinto back from the fellow i sold it to .. aside from him breaking the rear end for some reason it will not start unless i run a hot wire from the battery to the coil .. it had always worked fine for me with my running the stock ford solenoid in conjunction with the chevy solenoid and just feeding my coil off the ignition terminal on the ford solenoid .. for some reason that no longer works ..i have`nt fooled with anything of this nature in so long i`m at a loss as to what to do .. how much voltage should my stock ford solenoid be putting out at the ignition terminal ?.. and does the chevy starter have an ignition terminal that i may need to hook up to ..do ford solenoids get weak over time ? on the ignition output i mean ..
    iv`e used up all my sick days at work .. can i call in dead ?

    The stock solenoid only supplies 12 volts while cranking. It shouldn't be "live" unless cranking the engine.
    There should be a wire from the ignition switch to the motor compartment to turn the ignition on/off.
    A cheap test light and a few minutes time and you should be able to identify it.

    Hoss, maybe this will help. a simple drawing for a GM type points ignition but the wiring is close to the same. delete resistor of course.

    well .. it`s going to be fun for a minute but it has to get old soon .. finally got the rear end welded up and put back in today .. i only welded one spider as i did not want a locked rear .. i did not expect the result i got in the test ride .. it will spin the locked wheel on demand .. it will spin it at 60 MPH .. it will be undriveable on wet pavement .. i welded the passenger side axle .. would it have made a dif if i did the drivers side .. i still need and want a stock working rear ..i haven`t added a picture in so long i dont remember how ... give me a bit ...
