    If it blows when you install a new fuse, there';s a short to ground and you have to locate it.

    Any idea of the best way to find it? I have tried everything I can think of and have failed. I hate to trailor it in to the shop if it a easy fix and I just ain't getting it.

    Best way is to visually inspect the cable from one end to the other.

    Thanks for the help, it ended up being the starter stuck in a bad spot once I got it to move, I quit having fuses blow. Now my speedo and odometer won't work...... I will get through this eventually..
