Bah. I went out to start the '65 today and guess what, no dice. It was cranking but wouldnt start. Turns out I am getting intermittent spark from the coil (coil wire to ground, I checked it with a known good coil wire too). I did replace the coil with no luck so I am betting its the resistor wire correct? So where is it on a '65? Under the dash if I recall correctly. Anything else you all think it could be? Great day for me, found out I may have to have surgery too . Thanks all.

Tim,

Run a hot wire to the + terminal of the coil and try it again. Just to check your theory.

What's this about surgery?

Thanks Steve, will do that after my last final tonight. The surgery is nothing major. Its looking like I have gallstones so will have to have my gallbladder removed, just means a night or two in the hospital and 1-2 weeks on rest (this is the part I dont like, I want to work).

Wow, you're young to have a gallbladder removed! Sorry to hear that.
