1954 Buick no voltage to car

Recommended Posts

My 1954 Buick special has no power to the car. The vacuum with on the carb was acting up and I accidentally shorted one of the wires to the carb when taking it off now all power is gone to the car. I checked all fuses under the dash and the only way I can get power is to jump across the terminals on the battery block which looking at the schematic is not correct. When jumping across the block power returns but the dome light turns on and off with the ignition switch and the starter relay on the fender rapidly clicks.

Any idea I’m lost?


thanks, maguire

Do you see any fusible links in the wiring diagram or circuit breakers that might be disabled from the short.  A fusible link can open from a short circuit but look ok.
