No Start 65

Drove the car for a few hours and parks at my house. Went down and tried to start, won't turn over. Has fuel and radiator has new coolent. Replace the voltage regulator after I noticed the battery was being drained. Took the battery In and had it charged. Waiting to see if it dies. Any thoughts?

Definitely something electrical... Maybe the starter solenoid?

Have the battery tested, not by just a volt meter, that won't give you amps. If battery is good, then have alternator checked.

Also tested the alt and replaced it. Battery is good, had it checked twice. It is running smooth at the moment and I'm running it about 15 min twice a day to check if it's running smoothly. Last time it died at a stop light in town, so if it dies I want it to die at the house

Check for corrosion on on all your terminals (battery all the way to starter and ground.). They can be intermittent

Yeah if its being finiky I would assume some kind of a loose connection...I know you said you replaced the voltage regulator I might double check the connection there because that would drain your batt while it's running...just a thought.

Changed out the coil wiring and made sure I had a matchbox Space on the point set. The point set was flush when I opened the cap. I think the screw is striped and loose
