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?
have the same problem?
