trying to start Fairlane. Will run on starter, but let off starter engine dies.
This is a complete take apart and put back together for the car and the motor.
The car was running when brought into shop. Many new parts. Appreciate any thoughts
.. have you checked voltage to the + side of coil with key on ?? .. N/M

Starter solenoid wires crossed?

You should be able to find a wire diagram and match the wires. That is, if you have the original color coded wires. A cheap test light will find the problem though. And what Ricky said.

Coil + ign wire is red and green.You may have the red and white which is temp wire,just make sure you have them correct.They are close to each other in the harness. Coil + has to have 9+ volts with key on not running and B+ when cranking from the starter solenoid which seems like you do and losses it when released.Make sure all of the connector are plugged in properly.

Thanks the responses. I figured it out. The car had MSD ignition that I removed. Evidently
they had bypassed the resistor wire. But it was still intact and after 10-12 hrs. I just installed it. Fired right up.
So now I know if it dies when you turn the key from start, better look at resistor wire.
