Hey guys, some of you remember my challenger got put on the back burner awhile back but today I got the itch to go tinker and I need some help from my favorite E-Body gurus. Like alot of us my challenger had someone work on it before I bought it. It wasn't running when I bought it but that wasn't a big concern since I'm going to do a full restoration, however I was told the car was running when parked (due to the owners death) but I highly doubt it.
I have drawn some wiring diagrams to the best of my ability to represent the way its wired right now. The problem I'm having is no spark. The first picture shows the ignition system wiring as it is. The male/female connector coming from the distributor is not present but there is a solid black wire coming from the distributor to the - side of the coil. Since there is no connector coming from the dizzy the plug from the wiring harness isn't connected to any thing. On my 4 prong ballast resistor there is a black wire coming from one post that also has a blue wire connected to another post with nothing else connected.
On another prong there are 2 thicker brown wires. One looks like it goes to the + side of the coil and the other disappears into the wire loom. I've looked over the factory wiring diagram and some of this looks right but obviously not all of it.
In my second photo it shows the alternator with what appears to be a dark green wire and a blue wire with a white tracer. Both go into a wire loom that runs along the intake manifold. About half way down the wiring loom it looks like the same wires come out and attache to a single female spade connector that isn't attached to anything. This confuses me because it looks like the same color wires are connected to the alternator regulator on the firewall that tun into another wire loom so what are the wires coming out of the loom on the intake for?
Sorry if this is a lot but I feel like I need to provide as much detail as possible. As always I appreciate any help you guys can give. PS: My wiring colors may be slightly off but I'm pretty sure there accurate.
