I'd probably give it a shot at getting it driving and roadworthy... but if it comes to it, watcha doing with the rally wheels? And also, is that a Corn Pro trailer?

Anybody find a common spot where fuel pump wires running on the back of the engine for the ops and pump relay short to ground? Must be right on the back of the head or somewhere where it got close to exhaust. Unplugged fuel pump, fuse blows, unplug ops, fuse blows, unplug relay fuse blows, unplug ecm, fuse does not blow. I understand power runs THRU the ecm to get to either relay or ops therefore Im gonna check between ecm and open, namely back of engine and by exhaust. Jw if someone had physically ever found a rubbed/burnt wire here to make my job 1000x easier lol. I'm sure that's where it is, ill let you know. BTW the fuse that's blowing is ecmb. I know from my experience 2 weeks ago what's on the circuit!
