A 67 camaro didn't come with HEI so who knows what color someone put in.

The orig wire from the ing switch to the coil was Wht/Org/Purple, it was a resistance wire and all those colors would be in the run. (provided 9ish volts while the key was in the run position)

When who ever put in the HEI, they should have removed the resistance wire and installed a new wire from the ing switch to the HEI, that wire should be hot in start and run. If it isn't hot in start, you can hook a wire from the "I" terminal on the starter and splice it into the HEI wire from the Ing switch

A Purple wire goes from the ing switch to the "S" terminal on the starter. (sends 12v to the soleniod on the starter)

A off-white or light yellow wire from the "I" terminal on the starter to the old coil (provided a full 12v to the coil when the key was in the start position to help in starting the car, shouldn't be needed with the new HEI dizzy)

67 camaro ignition wiring

I have installed a new fuse box and wiring under dash and am trying to figure out the wiring. It does have a HEI but it also has the original wiring...yellow, white, purple etc. Another question....when you say cut the yellow/white wire and run to the I side of the solenoid, do you stop at the firewall plug? Thanks so much for your help!

If I were doiing it........ disconnect the Wht/yel wire from the "I" terminal on the starter and tie wrap it to the purple wire (at the starter) that way if you need it later it's already there.

The purple wire is fine as it is.

If you haven't already done so..... run a new 12 gauge wire from the ing switch (make sure it's hot in run and start) to the HEI dizzy. I'd discard all the old hacked/spliced wire running to the dizzy (from the ing switch). The new wire should be soldered at the switch terminal and not spliced into an existing pig tail........ my reasoning..... that way later if you develop a ing problem..... it won't be due to a poor splice/hacked etc....

Lastly...... if you can not find a wire that's hot in start and run......only then hook the wht/yell wire from the "I" terminal on the starter and run it to the HEI dizzy and splice into the new wire from the ing switch...... that way when the starter is engaged you will have 12v during the start seq etc....

Having computer troubles so not sure if I have already posted this........ All of the lights are working but the car won't turn over. Purple wire is going to solenoid and HEI is going to ignition on the hot side on start side but won't start. Any suggestions?

Make sure the purple is hot when you turn the key to start.
If it's not.... look at the Netural Safety Switch (NSS).... power is routed.... Fusebox to Key switch to NSS to Starter

Make sure the purple wire is on the "S" terminal and not the "I" terminal.

Lastly, use a screw driver and jump the two large studs on the starter and see if it'll turn over. Be very careful when you do this.
