"Another reason of why this site and the people that participate in it are great. I have been in need of a good running engine for the fleetline and thanks to Patgizz I now have one. He was kind enough to give a nice 250 I6 motor. Thanks again Pat!!!"

Check the bulkhead connector under the wiper motor.It may need cleaning.See if the ignition sends power to that point.If you have power here,the problem is from here to the starter.If no power to here from the ignition,it's from the connector to the ignition switch.
I just put a new (rebuilt) starter on my 65 yesterday.Bad soleniod.

Does the engine not turn over or does it crank but not start? Is it an automatic transmission? A neutral safety switch will keep it from cranking and the firewall plug can keep it from starting or cranking.
