the wiring harness, on a 69, that runs across the top of the lower dash just below the center ac vents gets really hot when the ignition is on. the pink and black are the hottest. the coil and its harness get extremely hot too. the pink wire is also cut coming from the ignition switch. the car starts and runs fine. what would be causing these wires and coil to get so hot. thanks as always

The pink Wire is a resistance wire so I bet it does warm up some....are you talking to hot to grab kind of hot? First thing I would check is that you have good solid enging to body/frame grounds. Don't trust the factory cheesy one - make a good one......
