    I am no auto electrician but did you follow these AccuSpark instructions regarding coil/resistance

    buick 350?.....is that Barry?
    The only difference is that the accuspark instructions show ignition live to coil but I have ignition live to starter solonoid then to coil. I wonder if I need to have the live to the solonoid but take a wire off the live to the coil before it gets to the solonoid?

    sounds like you're wired for a ballast resistor. the solenoid feeds a full 12v to the ballasted normally 9v ish coil when cranking to give a hotter spark on startup. wire the 12v ign' live straight to the coil plus side and try it (didn't i already suggest that?). neil.
    need a job done on your project? i may be able to help.

    Why don't you do the simple thing?
    Put a 12 volt coil on it. Run a new separate wire from the IGN terminal on the back of the switch.
    Job done.
    Its either you lay down and die or you get on with your shit till you do!!!!! No Other Way Around It. One or the other. Don't worry about being forgotten, you will. Rather worry about in how long it will take for you to be forgotten, bro.

    I've got the correct accuspark non ballast (red) coil that goes with the electronic ignition. If I wire the ignition direct to the coil and bypass the solenoid how will the starter turn when I turn the key?

    Run another wire from the start position of the ignition to the solenoid.

    Just a thought, I had a similar problem with a Volvo 1800 s once and it turned out to be the rev counter ( wired into ) the coil feed and was breaking down) Try rigging a wire directly from battery to coil as Sidspop says.

    do you have multimeter? the coil you have requires full voltage at all times, ie no resistance wires or ballast resistors.
