As I slowly work through all the stuff on my midget, I find out, that it
should be good to start....
So I put my new key in the ignition and turn it.......nothing.
I try the lights, still nothing, I try the signals, nothing, I try the
windshield wiper's, hey they work, so does the windshield washer, WOW
something works, but nothing else.  Now the windshield wipers will not stop
I also noticed, when I turn the key forward with the windshield wipers on,
they stop, and then as the key goes back to position 2 they start again.

Do I have a short somewhere, and where should I start looking....?

This car has never been started since I bought it, I was told it
ran......!!! (yeah right).  I've not done anything to the electrics of the
It has a new battery and battery leads, new spark plugs and a new
distributor cap.

Hopefully someone can point me in the right direction, or give me some tips
on what to look for.

This list is great, thanks to everyone who has helped me in the past, I
don't know where I'd be without you.

73 Midget.
