I have a 64 wagon with a pretty new alternator and optima battery. recently been having to get out and wiggle the little red wire going to the batt. then start. but hasn't been working as well lately. I turn the ign switch it begins to turn then cuts out. no power at all. wiggle small main wire to batt usually works but slowly not working, almost couldn't get it going this morning.
is this a starter issue ? ignition switch ? main wire ? ???? have no clue please help
