In reply to # 3514122 by ingoldsb If there is a short (or a device drawing excessive current) it should blow the fuse (unless someone replaced the fuse with one of much larger value).

There's such a thing as a high resistance short that can cause high currents but not necessarily enough to blow the fuse right away.

Something like chafed insulation against a rusty body panel could cause such a situation.

In reply to # 3514233 by oleanderjoe A lot of MGB Wiring issues can be traced back to the FUSE BLOCK> There was a Post on this site last week about "STAKING" the connections with a punch. I do that and also BRIDGE SOLDER the connections on the back side. A LOT of intermitant electrical issues disapear after that. Have Fun

Well Charles aka perfect pitch

The term is Elk skat, not skit and we don't need your level of posting on the experience. Clean it up or leave.

At the risk of being called a moron (again), with my drivel useless comment, Gary, if within one week of solving, you can edit your thread title and add "Solved", (1 week time limit), but please inform us what you found.
