1935 PJ Electrical Short

I have a 1935 PJ Deluxe which all of the sudden has been shorting out - blowing the fuse under the dash.

This initially happened when I pulled the headlight switch out a second pull. Then again one time the car went dead when  I stepped on the brakes.

I put in a higher amperage fuse I had in the toolbox so I could get home, now I notice I no longer have brake lights when stopping.  Initially I thought the 'short' 

was at the headlamp switch, now I'm not sure where it may really be - i have to go hunting. What I dont like is the ignition being tied into everything else. Is it easy enough to separate out the ignition on to its own fuse?  Thanks

My recommendation , especially if you want to drive the car is to replace the entire old harness with a new one. Sure, it's going to cost you a few hundred, but it's better that trying to track down constant little problems or chance losing the car to fire.
