Car wont turn off with ignition

Ok......And yet again, I am on this great site asking for more help.
The car will start with the ignition as normal, but when I go to turn it off, the engine remains running. I have a HEI ignition, and I assume that the once power is killed to the cap/coil, the engine should turn off. Well, I have a wire going directly to the fuse panel under the dash, I tested the terminal that I plugged it into, it has switch power. But the engine doesnt turn of when I turn the ignition off. Which tells me that I have constant power at all times. Did I wire the engine bay wrong? I also tested the wire that goes to the alternator, and it has 12V at all times. Is that right? Does anyone have any ideas?

Thanks again,
