Right, if the car was running fine before changing the wiring harness, then it's highly there's a problem with the fuel lines. I'd look at the voltage to the coil when the ignition switch is in the on position.

Now there is another issue and that is having rubber fuel lines in the engine compartment. That is done all the time by cars that are not Corvairs. However, our engine have that lovely fan belt. It would be very possible for a departing fan belt to destroy a rubber fuel line. Once that fuel line is open, it's not too difficult to imagine bad things that can happen then. You can get prebent steel lines Clarks or other vendors, but it's not too tough to bend you own.

well I put a new engine harness in the 64 monza, now it will not stay running, 
it is starving for fuel. I am thinking of changing the fuel lines out and maybe 
instead of using rubber, I would use steel. there is a place that sells them 
already preformed as per factory. Also was going to take sock filter off and add 

a inline filter. what say the professionals out there in cyberspace. thanx  


Was it it running fine before you changed the harness?  Did you touch anything 
else besides the harness
