    Electrical wiring diagrams

    im working on a 1966 cadillac calais as a project and ive replaced the solenoid, the coil, the plugs, wires, distributor cap, rotar, and points. and i cant figure out why it wont start when i turn the key. i know the starter works because i used an ignition switch interupter and the starter motor turned. any suggestions?

    When you turn the key does the starter turn over, but the engine wont fire? Or does it do nothing at all?

    Are you getting power to the solenoid when the key is in the start position? Are both battery cables good? Do the lights work?
