more electrical help

im still blowing my 15amp gauge/coil fuse, and sometimes my 30amp fuse that i put in place of the burned out fusible link
ive looked and looked and looked and looked but i have not been able to find a short anywhere

according to the wiring diagram, the black wire with the white tracer that goes to the gauge/coil fuse box also goes to the coil, the gauges (i assume the tach, but all gauges are affected when the fuse blows)... the wire also goes to the fuel cut soleniod,TWSV,MCSV,vent solenoid,ECM, and alternator excitation. ive already unplugged the gauges, the coil, and the alternator (which is new by the way), and the fuse still blows... im not really sure what this other stuff is, much less what it does or looks like, so im having a real hard time finding my short...

if anyone has any ideas, let me know...

Re: more electrical help

If Sam is OEM wired no added special devices on this
circuit and you isolated or disconnect ten devices listed
below and visually check by logic count of ten.
If 15amp fuse continues to blow problem has been reduced
to circuit conductor Black/white.

1. Instr. panel
2. Alt
3. Dist.
4. Coil
5. Idel up sol
6. Vac switch valve
7. fuel cut valve
8. mix control valve
9. E.R.G. sol valve
10.ECM computer

To find out where this wire is making contact to gound
and or other conductors pick largest main hornace off
branch that contains black/white trace.
Cut black/white trace wire if fuse does not blow fault
has been isolated, main wire hornace is good. Slice open
off branch tace wire to fault location.

Systematically isolate each secondary hornace branch that
contains faulted Black/white trace conductor check each one
at time until fault is isolated. If fuse blows after all
branchs are isolated fault is in main hornace cut it open
to find it fault.

Quick and easy way to find shorted conductors in wire
hornace is by feel overheated wires plastic insulation
melted together cause hard spot or series hard spots
within hornace and can be located by touch.

Shorted wires inside wire hornace are cause by over
fuseing or wires melted together from being to close to
heat source engine.
