Re: Ignition issue
I had the same problem with my 64 Fairlane after I installed a 73 351c equipped with a Pro Comp electronic disc/coil. Turns out, the stock 260 coil required a resistive wire that limits the voltage. I by-passed the resistive wire (pink wire) between the ignition and firewall with a regular #14 stranded wire and it fired right up. To chick to see if this is your problem, run a jumper wire from the battery to the +terminal on the coil and see if it will start.
