Re: Low Fuel Light ON with Ignition OFF

Did you recently change out the solenoid? The prove out lead should be on the starter side not the battery side.

Re: 68 fuel sending unit

Re: Electronic Ignition - Pros and Cons

Pertronix Ignitor II with the stock coil works very well. All you need to do it to run a new wire from the back of the ignition switch (connect to red or pink w/ green stripe for most years) out to the Ignitor.
