    Problem solved!!! It was the blue ecu module that I put on a few weeks ago. I didn't notice the starting problem till later, or it may not have started till a while after I swapped it out. Cranks and runs great now with the old orange ecu.. FINALLY!!!!! All the bugs are out.. The only problem left with the car is a little oil leaking, which I try to fix this winter...

      I know this is an old post, and I don't mean to hijack it( carjack?) I installed all new wiring harnesses, for the dash, engine; console, rear body harness etc. I will also mention they are a stock reproduction harnesses. I used dielectric grease on every connection, and went down to bare metal on the grounds. I did not cut any wire, or patchwork anything together. I know Murphy's law is at work here. I had the new battery checked, and it's 100 percent charged.

      So do you have a question or are you just making a statement?

      Roger that. Yes, the question is that I do not have any electrical activity. No lights,cranking nothing. Like I said in my earlier statement I was pointing out on what I did replacing the wiring. The battery checks out fine. I thought I did everything the right way. I should have communicated that better than what I did.

      So you have everything connected and no power anywhere? Sounds to me like you don't have the fusible link connected to the system so there is no power coming in.

      Basically the fusible link brings all the power into the system for ignition, lights, etc.

      I looked last night, and as sure as the sun rises in the east, the fusible link was in the wrong slot on the bulkhead connector. Just when I thought I was right....boom!
