Blown tach and fuel guage fuse!

I am lookin at buying a '97 F-250 with a 7.3 in it. The only thing wrong with it is that the fuel guage and tach dont function. The owner says that the fuse is blown, and he thinks there might be a short. Has anyone ever had to deal with this before, and if so whats the best way to tell is there is a short in the system? It has dual tanks, I dont know if that effects anything or not?

I dont know the fuse number#. I talked to the guy again today and he said the the fuse kept on blowing on him. He then took a friends dumb advice and threw in a bigger fuse. Which in result he shorted the system out. He says that the short is in the steering column. Now im not familiar with it but wouldnt it run behind the dash instead of the steering column? Thats about all the info I can gve you. Hopefully if the weather co-ops tomorrow im goin to take a look at it.

Thanks bigwhite7.3stroker, glad to join you guys!

Pull the cluster out look for a wire that's been skinned a bit, 3 harness plug into the gauge cluster, and never put to large a fuse in there, that was dumb advice.
