I have a wierd problem with my 77 280, I had it running one day everything was fine, next day I go to start it and it just cranked. I've tracked the problem down to no power to the fuel pump, additionally what I've noticed is there is no power to the direction signal or charge light. All this stuff was working when I turned it off. Any ideas or suggestions. Thanks for the help.

No power as the pump doesn't run or did you actually check for voltage at the pump? There are bullet connections for your pump leads under the carpet behind the passenger seat. I have personnally had them work loose on my first '77 280. I don't know of a common circuitry between the fuel pump and your direction signals and charge lamp.

You may have a wiring harness that is not connected. Check for one located right near you battery with a yellow clip.
Take care,
Austin

After a while of sorting throught the factory wiring diagram that I just received I found the problem. There was a short in one of the four fusible links located just ahead of the battery. Apperently the fuel pump and direction signals both receive power from the same link in a mixed up sort of way. Thanks for your suggestions.
