I've experienced a slow battery drain for a while and tracked it down by inserting a piezo buzzer between the positive terminal of the battery (which is located in the trunk) and the red battery cable. Then I pulled fuses to see where the short might be. I'm using a Ron Francis harness.
It turns out it's the #2 terminal of the AC/Delco 12SI 94 amp alternator. The alternator is wired: stud to starter via #8 wire and then to battery in trunk, can't remeber the guage, but it's one size bigger than the charts recommended; #1 to switched B+ in ignition circuit; #2 to bus that feeds the fuseblock for voltage sensing (I added this a while back because the battery is in the trunk and the BBC needs adequate voltage and current for the starter ).
Should I be hearing a tone (which means that current is flowing) at the #2 terminal?
Added: I did find this: "Another is that the field connection inside the alternator can allow a small current draw while the vehicle is not running, and this can cause a dead battery if the car is stored for a period of time." at Rowand.net
So do I have it wired wrong? The # 1 wire was wired per the RF instructions; I added the #2 wire for voltage sensing.
