    Haven't checked. I'll do that in the morning. I know I have power at all four terminals of my ballast resistor when the ignition is on.

    You should then have power to the ignition switch-S1. S2 to bulkhead and relay start circuit check?

    If you mean the lugs on the relay I tried jumping them ad got not spark. Forgot to grab my remote at the stepsons.

    Same results inside the car. I have an MSD 6A if that makes a difference.

    Just touched both terminals at the starter and it turned, so it's good. Not getting power to it. Still no power at the relay where S5 attaches when attempting to jump it manually. Chasing continues.

    Have you tested with a light to see if it gets to the starter relay? Will it start with the ignition on and jumping the starter relay?
    Just elimination. On reason to fix what isn't broke.

          The pool water will disappear in a few days.
          97 here today realfeel 100. It is only supposes to get worse the rest of the week. Will have to wash the water off later with something that smells better. After dark when the temp goes down.

            If this heat gets that far try not to melt on the pavement.

              Never worked around a MDS system other than the distributor. Will have to google it.
              What I understand still no starter circuit to starter solenoid. Switch test ok. Bulkhead ok.
              Sounds like a broken wire.

                Yep, yesterday in the car at the bulkhead with a light, I got bored with taking the videos. Tried another ignition switch, and another relay,just to check, and had the same results. Gonna see if I have a spare mini starter and try that. I'll double check the wires going to the starter, but I think they are good, have heat shielding on them. All the wires involved look good, unless I missed something somewhere. I'll double check everything in the next couple of days, going to fire the 500 tomorrow, hopefully!

                  Load check the wires might have one hanging on by a strand and it will ohm out good, been through that before!

                    Does the starter relay even click? Neutral safety switch provides the ground for the relay.

                    They looked and felt good, I'll go over them all again.

                    Yesterday Bob let our grand daughter drive the 65 Dart, our daughter was a little mad but soon got over it, then our daughter took it for a couple of hours cruising the back roads to Ridgefield Wa. then she took my old 55 4X4 truck out 36897099_10156693976152268_4014723888276570112_n.jpg 37032687_10156693976187268_4647337043007897600_n.jpg 37015876_10156693976162268_6010396728878956544_n.jpg
