Every since I replaced the non mustang switch with the correct one, I have had problems with the ignition. It will just die and then will not start. The problem is definately with the coil lead off the switch. I have rewired it and still the same problem. It is either my connections, a finicky resistor wire, or a bad ignition switch right out of the box. Is it posible to be the new ignition switch shorting out?.

It's very possible your new ignition switch is shorting out. The brand new switch we had put into my son's '65 lasted about 2 months, then one day he turned the key and the whole thing broke into 3 pieces ::

Easy way to check is just to unplug the resistor wire from it and put a volt meter on the lead. Turn the key to on and see if you have ~12v.
