lets go back to the beginning. Just died on the road.
Why do cars die - no fuel , no spark, both or one or the other, rule both out
Electrical - spark, coil - check and rule out
A loose battery cable, ground - make sure these are OK. There is a way to bypass icu, I will need to find my notes on that , but good info here, 1971 220
also make sure you have not shorted out the starter or coil pathways. I had a non start issue with a bare wire that was grounding on the distributor housing, and then one on the starter

Could be simple - good luck
