So, not getting any power to the ignition. Does this wiring seem right? I've my battery positive wired like this:
1. A line running through a 20 amp breaker to the voltage regulator attached to my cycle electric generator. 2. A line running directly from my starter solenoid to the battery from the bottom post ( top post green line to thunderheart box). 3. A black 12 gauge wire from the thunderheart box to the battery (part of the thunderheart rear assembly). I put a voltmeter on the generator)regulator's B terminal and it's getting power. The green wire out of the starter solenoid also seems to be getting power. The two thunderheart ignition wires are attached to the ignition and I've got another thunderheart wire running to the coil. But I get nothing at the key and no lights anywhere.

I do not see a wire from battery to ignition switch in your description and would expect the Thunderheart ignition comtrol module to be powered through ignition switch, not directly from battery.

I started a new thread with more detail because the issues seemed global. I'll put it below but i think it's going though the Thunderheat unit, then out to the ignition (I've got two lines running to the ignition switch from the unit, another line from the unit goes to the Coil. I feel like I've overcomplicated things a bit now and that (with what I've learned in the process) I could more easily wire it using one of the schematics on the board with circuit breakers and no brain but I'm all in now.
