I played a similar game with mine.  I don't know about '74, but mine a '77
has an intertia switch under the dash.  Looks like a tube with a button on top.
Every once in a while the switch needs a reset.  Push the button on top and
check the harnes for power at the pump.

P.S. In fact I just had to push the button today on the way home from work.
It is item number 256 on my top 200 things still to replace on the car.... :-)
