#30 Fuse 30amp

So I did all the research behind the #30 fuse blowing and it leads to the fuel bowl heater. Unplugged it, replace fuse, turn key and sure enough instant blown fuse again.

Any other ideas beside just tracing the wires to see if there is a short??

Thanks,
Drew

Are you sure you unplugged the right thing?

How about tracing back the wiring to the heater and looking for a problem?

Pull the fuse, run a couple wires with spade connectors to the fuse, then through a 12v bulb. the bulb provides enough resistance to keep the fuse from blowing. start wiggling wires, when you get to where the short is the bulb will change brightness or go out, depending on what is still powered in the circuit.

Rubbing on valve cover. Fixed that and no more blown fuses but she won't kick over.

Thought I had it fixed and shed fire right up.
