Interesting info Big Dave. Definitely was a combination of multiple things. I believe the light that is attached as shown is in fact the GEN idiot light. I know the light you speak of. I've fiddled with it in the past when I was messing with gear alignment on the indicator. I've had a heck of a time with the ground on that one. But it connects into a different location on my '67.
68WASAGOODYEAR, you were right on. After replacing the ignition switch, rotor, and distributor cap, I eventually made my way to the ignition control module. My hunch is that it was originally a short at the ignition, sending a bad connection to the distributor, eventually fouling that module. Sounds like it doesn't take much from what I gather.
Thanks for your input. I'm back on the road!
