1980 Chevrolet C20 Silverado 8 Cyl 7.4L
small wire connected to the ground post of the battery got hot and melted the insulation.
There does not seem to be any other damage. Is there some kind of a meter that can be used to locate a short in the electrical system? My truck is a 1972 C20 with a big block. Your information as to the year list does not seem to go back that far.
