Please see Questions and Answers for some topics that frequently appear on this board. As you can see, this board loads rather slowly. If you are posting something for sale, please remember to include your location since someone who might otherwise be interested might not be able to use a part or a vehicle that is too far away. Posting your location when you're selling something that needs to be hauled will save everyone's time (and reduce the number of posts on this already too-slow message board). Thanks.

If you disconnect the negative battery cable, then but a test light between the cable and the post, you will see it light up if there is a short. One by one you can disconnect accessories, and when the light goes out, you have the culprit!.

BTW, I had a similar problem, but it turned out the brand new battery I bought was bad!

On the 12v conversion, make sure you either have a 12v coil with an internal balast resistor, or that you have a balast resistor before the points, or you will fry the points. Don't ask how I know.
