I recently purchased a 78 Austin mini 1000 as a project. It's been sitting a few years and needs some work. For some reason it seems to have no power coming from the ignition cylinder, I just replaced it today with a unit from seven mini parts thinking it was the cylinder itself that had gone bad. But I installed the new one and still nothing works. Other things like headlights and the horn still work, but ignition cylinder related items don't. The idiot I bought it from had the battery hooked up backwards and when he tried to start it fried the old ignition switch and the alternator, and no I'm worried I've got more of a wiring mess on my hands, Any tips or help would be very much appreciated, as I'm not sure what I should try next.
