There are gonna be a few more wires coming from the firewall that you aren't gonna be reusing. I think one might be green,it was on mine. I would use a test light and find another one that is hot in the key on position and use that. Do you have a chiltons manual? That should show you which one would be hot. I'm not sure how many amps it takes to trip the relay, though it probably isn't much. Personally, I would try for two different wires, though splicing the yellow would probably work.

I didn't realize you needed start AND run. Thought you only needed start. Guess I didn't read close enough. There are bunches of those, lemme look in my old papers....I'll find you one or two.

The yellow works fine on the 87, probably changed color over the years. Grab a test light and start looking for an appropriate wire.


Get a good test light, the 5 dollar ones from the Auto store are frustrating to say the least.

just pick a wire that is hot in start and run. there are numerous ones coming into the engine bay from the main plug in the bulkhead. any will do!
and i agree, PICS!!!

mount alt and PS pump, belts, fill trans, get it to run right.

it idles REAL high and floods almost immediately..... any input?? (carb with an electric fuel pump that pumps 4-8PSI)

jeez..... it's always something....got the carb fixed, and had all intentions of finishing today..... started it, it ran ok, needed the timing adjusted. i had started it a few times this week also, no problems. then the last time i go to crank it today, it turns over, i let off the key, and the starter keeps going. had to remove the battery cable to get it to stop..... touched it back to it (with key out) and the starter kicks in again.....



i'm so damn close!!! please help!!! what might it be?

Well, your getting power to the solenoid at all times, so race that wire back and it should go to the switch in the column. If its shorted to power it will do this. Make sure there are no wires laying across is open or anything. Its either that or the switch in your column...
