67 Malibu, Electrical Starter Problems, sometimes
I need your help. We have a 67 Malibu with the original 283 and powerguide with a factory console shift. Every so often when starting the car there is no power to the starter, just like a bad solenoid, no noise, nothing. Turn the ignition switch back and forth a few times and it works, some times right away, some times later, hot or cold, no difference, doesn't happen all the time just every once in a while. I have replaced the starter and solenoid and the ignition switch with a matching key tumbler, used a name brand. When this happens every thing else in the car works as it should, just no starter.
My next step is to replace the console neutral safety switch, when checking it out the switch functions correctly but that is my next step because I'm at a loss. Problem is I cannot locate a switch, none of the local parts houses nor none of my catalogs identify a console neutral safety switch for a powerguide.
Any suggestions to help resolve my starter problem or locate a neutral safety switch. Apprecite any help you can provide.
