1966 Fairlane Electrical Problem

My 1966 Ford Fairlane has been draining the battery. If I jump the car it will run for about 15 minutes or so, and then shutoff. I then turn the key and nothing happens. I pulled the starter off and tested it and it's fine, replaced the alternator, solenoid switch, and starter switch, and I put a new battery in it. Has anyone had a similar problem or has an idea of what I should do next?

Re: 1966 Fairlane Electrical Problem

ignition switch,ground to body or motor, with the car running can you pull the negative cable off and the car stays running, if it stays running the alt is charging if not alt or voltage reg is bad. but it shouldnt be killing the car that fast.

my need is speed

We had problems with our ignition switch doing that on our 67 fairlane. I'll ask my husband if he has any more suggestions. I hope you figure it out.

A Common power drain is from faulty Alternators that short out within the case.
