I have just installed a Painless 10120 wire harness and new 200 amp alternator
..Now when I try to hook up power to the battery my 60 amp maxi-fuse continues to blow.
I have put my power tester on continuity and hooked it up to the positive terminal for the battery and when I touch the body of the alternator or any part of the engine
I get continuity.
This tells me that when I try to install the maxi fuse I am now making a dead short for some reason and I can not figure out why. I have triple checked my wiring and it is right so why do I blow a 60 amp fuse and how the H. am I getting continuity from positive terminal to all grounded areas of my engine.
I don't think it matter but the engine is a 351 Windsor/408 STroker.
With the Painless 10120 harness you need to wire it as per instructions for PP-662 if you are using an alternator over 65 amps.
This is a time sensitive situation in that I am supposed to be leaving on holidays in 4 hours and I need this car so I hope you can help.
This is our Biggest long weekend of the year in Canada so I can not see a mechanic here,m all are gone for long weekend.
I will scan the PP-662 instructions and maybe this will help.
