Just tried to start my bugeye today. New wire harness, electric radiator fan, electric tacho, electric fuel pump. First try I noticed a green wire soldered to the housing on the wiper motor smoking. I disconnected it. Next try saw smoke coming from the area of the combo switch. No burnt wires anywhere. Before the 2nd try,the fuel pump and tach were working fine,now nothing. I removed the switch and nothing burnt visibly. Any thoughts? It is a negative ground car. I had run ground wires to all the switches and guages, as I have installed a wooden dash.
