Assuming the OP is correct and has a Power wire going to the Distributor, I assume he must have an HEI distributor.

I don't know what the current draw on an HEI is but I do know that when the engine is not running there is no significant current draw.
Unlike the Duraspark that draws 9 to 12 amps. wich is why they burn up when the key is left ON.
