Re: Ignition problem, stumped!

Where would the the ignition panel fuse be located in the engine compartment?
It's my recollection that it came off the positive terminal on the starter and it was a little inline fuse. When I troubleshoot stuff like this, I use a jumper wire with alligator clips quite a bit to bypass wiring harnesses to help isolate the problem. Catalina had pretty good owner association websites, at least they did for the 34. They may have one for the 27 as well and if it's a common problem, you'll find a fix for it there.
