Started car and after several minutes of idling, it just quit suddenly. Several attempts produced no fire, just cranking. Checked all the usual stuff - cap, rotor, wires new and ok, fuses ok. Figured it was either coil or old Hayes magnetic distributor pickup (points replacement) then decided to go ahead and replace the old Hayes magnetic pick up for a new Pertronix unit. Also put in a new Pertronix coil. No luck. Have re-checked all connections, ground to distributor body - all ok. Checked voltage to + side of coil with other side to known ground with switch on and only read about 9 volts. No ballast resistor in the circuit - it was removed years ago when the Hayes was put in.
Thoughts go toward ignition switch - is that possibly bad. If so, do you have to drop the steering column to get to the ign. switch?
Can any one suggest next series of tests to help me find the problem.
