Re: Electrical problem
Just checked that, the starter wiring is fine. This car doesn't have very much of its original colored wiring unfortunately. Is it possible I connected the alternator with the wrong polarity? I've tried reversing the wires and it still shorts but maybe the damage has been done already so it will short both ways? I don't know, I'm really clutching for straws here.
I've found that the short will occur when both the starter and alternator are hooked up, but if I disconnect either one of them it's fine. Don't know if this helps to narrow it down but I'm pretty desperate.
