Don't get me wrong here either guys I highly appreciate even just getting responses here. I just got to a point where looking everything over and search overloading I had too many questions and not enough answers, admittedly getting a head of myself without even officially starting this project. So I do appreciate the reality check of it and will keep everyone posted with how I feel about safety and horsepower and such when I actually get there. Right now I think wiring is number one, now the wiring isn't all bad but isn't all good either do you think figuring out this short and tracing all the wires and making a diagram is best or maybe starting from scratch? And just an update while trying to find this short I found my wire from fuel tank sending unit has been severed it's just kind of sitting in the frame atm. Now I'm sure this is why my gas guage isn't working but could it be related to the short as well?
