OK- I replaced both ignition switch and starter solenoid. This cured the problem of starter motor turning over when key was in off position. As I was putting a tune up on and had engine running, points set, timing set, etc. it died, as if I turned the key off. It is getting fuel ok. What the #&*% is going on with this car now? HELP

Found the wires for starter were too close to exhaust manifold, moved them and things seem ok. Could these wires have been getting hot and causing it to shut down, or should I look for something else going on?
