Car has always started,and never any ignition problems.I removed the dash panel and instrument cluster,which involved removing the ign.switch.So,while dash panel is still out,I plugged the ign.switch back in so I could move the car.It cranks fine but no ign.Have current at the coil but when cranking that current is gone.So with key on I jumped between ign.and solenoid terminal and it started.Took switch out to check continuity between battery terminal and ign.terminal with key in run position AND start position and there IS continuity.But when plugged in there's nothing going to coil when in start position,but in run there is.BTW,dist. is an HEI.Maybe coincidentially time for a new switch?
