wire for the resistor block and coil
Posted 28 January 2011 - 07:46 PM
Where is the resistor wire supposed to originate from? Does it go through the
bulkhead connection? I have looked through all of my wiring diagrams and cannot seem to find it. Does it come directly from the ignition switch?
Right now, my coil is not getting power while the starter is cranking. As soon as I let go of the switch into the run position, it starts right up. However, If I feed 12volts directly to the coil, the starter stays engaged....
Any ideas? My car is a 1963 Buick Riv...

If your Riv starts in the run position and operates properly after that point your resistance wire is OK. I dont have a schematic in front of me but as I recall your `63 bypasses the resistance wire while cranking from the ignition switch...and not from the starter solenoid like later cars. Take a look at your ign switch to be sure it is showing battery voltage at the crank/bypass terminal while in the crank position.
