so, i got the 351 in, all bolted to the tranny ready to go, but i can not get it to roll over at the key. i have noticed a like 10 gauge wire going from the starter solenoid into the car, my dash is out right now so i can see it clear as day.....but i dont know if its something that needs to be hooked up or not.....anyone with some experience with the early 80s mustangs and capris? ive had this car for 2 years and have never had it running, help me. :'(

rmodel65:
ive never had a fox that early so i dont know what wire youre talking about

fordman1985:
would the neutral safety switch have anything to do with it not starting? and no power getting to the coil? thats rthe only thing i can think of that would be giving me this much hell. and i think all the wiring stayed the same up until like 85, when they changed the cars over to efi.

rmodel65:
the neutral starting switch will keep the engine from turning over..... 

fordman1985:
ok, now my t5 is out of an 88, and the plug for the neutral safety switch is different on the car. what do i do about that? would that switch have anything to do with my coil not getting power? is that in the same circuit?
