electrical short help needed

I'm working on restoring a stock 59 chevy truck and the problem is when I leave the battery cables connected the battery goes dead. I changed the battery but the problem continues. The wiring is pretty much stock and I was wondering if there is a way to find out where the short may be. Any help would be great.

You could try unhooking the alternator power wire and let it sit, or does it have a generator on it, "memory loss!'
Regulator points stuck, etc.

This forum is for Site help...It would be best if you asked your question in the Electrical forum.....that way the guys with the answers will see it.
