    1970 Monte Wiring Diagrams

    Rob - thanks and I am wondering what the numbers and letters represents? For example, 20 Y - what does 20 means and Y means? I am looking at first image around the starter and coil area. Rick

    Starting up issue

    My plan is to keep stock, I read somewhere in this forum that it’s best to use 100 amps over anything less, can I just install the 100 amps without replacing anything other than the voltage regulator?

    Starting up issue

    I wanted to go in to fix issue at once, from reading other thread that I have pulsating issue, I am curious which voltage regulator and alternator should I purchase? AC Delco - C635 or AC Delco D663? Also alternator, what amp should I get? 100 amp or 140 amp?

    Starting up issue

    Thanks all as I have several places to check - I noticed that my battery ground is attached to alternator bracket as I read somewhere it should be bolted to the engine block so I guess I will try that and check on wire from starter to the coil. Where would I find the ground for neutral safety switch and ignition switch? I see the parts but not sure where to check for grounding?

    Starting up issue

    Doug - it varies regardless the engine is cold or hot as I put in new starter last fall and a new battery last week, attempted to start yesterday morning, it doesn't turn the engine at all as I had power (dome light is on) then I tried a couple of times to start, it started immediately. I thought the new battery might need to be build up so I drove it around for a cruise, about half hour then parked it, tried to start it - nothing (not even cranking - feels like a dead battery). I gave it a couple of tries, it started up immediately. I am not sure if it's even related - I had a local shop to rebuilt my 4BBL carb last summer which I wasn't happy with their service. One day I noticed that the OIL/GEN/TEMP lights were not lighting up, I found a wire hanging in rear of the carb as I believe it was for TEMP so I plugged it back in, OIL/GEN/TEMP didn't light up at all. Is this even related because my Monte didn't give me starting up issue before the carb rebuilding at local shop? Or is it normal to get no start at times that I have to try it again and again? Hope I give more information for troubleshooting assistance? Rick
