Hey Guys! So I have a question.

My El co randomly wouldn't start the other day, I found that I Have no spark...

Well, after Ohming out my coil and finding out everything on the distributor was good, I found a power wire right next to the wire for TACH on my cap (HEI Ignition). I hooked up a test light too it and after turning the truck over a few times with the key the lamp never lit Up.

What provides power to this wire? Is it straight off the battery? Is there a fuse somewhere? A relay? I can't find any info about the wire in the diagrams I look up (but my fuse box is also layed out much differently than other apparently).

Need a pic of the connector you are talking about. Wire that energizes the distributor should be pink.
