Some had the filter like GM in the carburetor where the fuel line goes in. Some were in the line and some of the fuel injected models had it on the frame rail. If thyis helps any one please rate it thanks

Yes, you have a dead short / either Hot to Hot, or Hot to ground. Very likely a shorted bulb or bulb socket. Maybe a crushed wiring location under the chassis ?

you will have to remove the motor, pull oil pan replace crank and change the push rods and cam but if your are going that far why stop for just that little bit you might as well go and pull he heads have them port and pollished add headers and new high rise intake and bigger carb the remove the oem fan and water pump buy a electric water pump and electric fans to mount on the radatior.

Did you just hook this up or was it working before? First batt voltage should not drop below 9.6v under load/cranking, second thing comes too mind is if your running a ballast resistor and where you have pos. wire for point less ignition-before or after ballast resistor alot of pointless ignitions want you to get the power before resistor so the ignition module has enough voltage to work with. also you can check voltage at coil during cranking to see- you need to be above about 7 volts or so. Also little known fact, if you have stater sol. on firewall/fender and you have second small terminal labeled "I" if you connect this directly to coil pos. it will apply full batt to coil during start only-by passing resistor.

it sits in a box above your passenger's feet. this is not a big project as it precedes all the airbags and wrap around dashboards. may want to find an old chiltons or haynes on ebay. most likely very cheap.
