Re: 68 XR7 charging system problems

'68 XR-7 should not have a wire connecting the alternator directly to the starter solenoid. It has a "shunt" built into the main harness so that connection is made in parallel with the amp gage.

Re: no start after driving

Bad connection somewhere. Maybe one of those cheapie battery disconnects in one of the cables? Or cheapie battery cable replacement ends that clamp on at the battery?
