main 70 amp inline fuse blown... several others on the block blown... the good news is the motor started and ran and sounded great and i just have a lil electrical issue that once i track the lil punk down everything should be running great
You said in one of your post that the truck is getting a new painless wiring harness, has this been done yet? What year is your truck? Was it computer controlled. If so you might want to start that job now. I hate electrical shorts! Good luck with the rewiring.
