Ignition problem 1961 Chevy truck
I just got a1961 Chevy truck with no working ignition switch. There was a universal switch in the dash but tumbler was jacked! I got a new one assuming it worked ? prior to that twisting the alternator and ignition wires and touching the power wire would work fine! Truck would run fine as long as ignition and alter wires stayed touching each other. Now using the switch, only power to starter but will not fire, if I place ignition and alternator wire together, switch will start but switch will not turn off truck ! some one suggested a on/off switch and separate push start button running power and alternator wires to switch and distributor and cross wire from alternator to push button? It will turn on starter but no fire ? Please help...
