The 67 Dart is having problems with getting no power at all at times. It will start and run great most of the time then sometimes I turn the key and get nothing. I changed the starter relay and it has a new battery all the conections are good. Do you think it is the wire coming throught the firewall rusting out or the igintion switch? It is driving me nuts trying to figure it out and the guy comes next week to pick it up.

The most likely culprit is the main power connection in the bulkhead, next is a fusable link that is about gone or loose wires at the alternator guage.
The alternator guage was boucing around and i thought it may need a voltage reg. But then it stop doing it? Should I check that first? Which wire is the main power wire in the bulkhead? Where is the fusable link?

That's exactly what used to happen to my Bug. Went off-roading once and when I stopped I couldn't get any power when I went to start again. Would just touch the wires and it would start again magically. Took a scotch pad to the main power terminal and haven't had a single problem since.

I had that problem. Like Jim said it was the connection at the bulkhead. I was driving along and then everything went out.
