I just traced the purple wires from the ignition over to this, it is behind the gauges. Could that be the trouble? It has the name Mallory on it.

The pic is of the audible alarm circuit board, they do go out but will not cause the engine not to start. As far as voltage at coil 8-ish volts is where it needs to be if you have a ballast resistor, it will not have a resistor behind the dash.
Here is a basic 351w engine diagram, yours should be similiar.

Thanks,

If no resistor behind the dash, then I don't think I have one.

So I should be getting more than 8 to the coil. Any guess as to where I could be losing volts?

You probably need to start using an ohmmeter to check resistance on connections.

^What he said..

How many volts do you have on the purple wire going to the choke?

Back into this project once again. And have a quick question. My mechanic friend who is helping me thinks it could be a crank sensor not lining up right with the new fly wheel. I didn't think there was any sensor on these old engines. Just the temp guage.

Do the engines have a crank sensor and if so, where would it be located?

Your engine does not have a crank sensor.

Do the gauges work? Have you checked for voltage at the coil? At the electronic ignition? What kind of voltage do you have on the purple wire going to the electronic choke with key on? If your getting voltage I might suspect the EI may have failed.
