1972 Chevy Corvette V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 90000 miles
My 72 350/auto has got me baffled. I put a voltmeter on the ignition side of the coil with the key in the " on" position and got a reading of about 6.5 volts. Turning the ignition to " run" shows about 12v and starts the car, all OK so far it seems. But when the key returns to the " run" position, the voltage stays around 12v. Shouldn't this go back to 6.5v? The ignition wire (switch to coil) seemed very warm, almost hot, so I changed the ignition switch, no change. Any ideas?
