The moment of truth: We turned the key, and...nothing! No power in the entire car. Hate that. Early A-bodies have a main power terminal on the core support just ahead of the battery. In 72 it was moved to the firewall near the master cylinder. We found no power here when the battery was hooked up. The quick solution was to rewire it by running one cable from the power-point stud to the large terminal on the back of the alternator and another to the larger terminal on the starter.
