Re: Plymouth wants to run, but can't, then it can



Turned out to be the last time I changed out the valve cover gaskets
on the Hemi, months ago, I didn't notice the wiring harness under the
right side cover. Ended up shorting out the coil hot wire, along with
the alternator wire, grounding out..
Ignition coil was toast too. After repairing the burned wiring, and
installing a new coil, and a new battery, the Hemi started .
Thanks for all your input. I did buy a new ignition switch, but
returned it after I found the problem.
