60amp accessory fuse B blowing in main fuse box

Just finishing up an engine rebuild. Reinstalled enginge and attempting to star when we ran into fuse B blowing when ignition switch is turned. Checked big draw suspects and finding nothing. No electrical equipment has been changed.

What does this fuse feed?
Any pointers on how to locate the short?

Truck is a 95nas. Fuse is the 60 amp 'fuse B' in the main fusebox on the engine bay firewall. Fuse is labeled 'Accessories and A/C'

I would go back over the wires you disconnected to make sure everything is where it should be. If all of that is fine then trace all the wires to make sure one didn't get pinched and is grounding out. As Chris mentioned you may have a short since the fuse is blowing right away.

Yes I am pretty sure its a short form a pinched wire. I am trying to narrow it down to the circuits fed by this 60amp 'accessory' fuse. The A/C is of course one of them.

Any suggestions on the other 'Accessory' circuits fed by this fuse would be very helpful!

Thanks!

Owen

Give a quick look between the bell housing and the block makes for a nice pinch point that is out of sight.

Ok, got it.
Power lead to the coil was grounded. Duuh!. Found it by connecting a low watt bulb across the blowing 60 amp socket and disconnected terminals one by one till the light dimmed.

No pinching, just a brain fart.

Thanks for the posts!
