    Even the sealtite connection looks like it’s cross threaded,...As Maxwell Smart would say in this situation ( about the short length of sealtite to get a proper thread connection ) Missed it,........by that much.

    No grounds no dead shorts no crossed wires no open elements.

    My best guess is there was one loose connection, the piece of wire there that was toast. That one wire connected the blower and a bank of heat. So the terminal was loose, got hot, burnt up, blower quit, and caused a chain reaction.

    Put a piece of wire in, tighten all loose connections as there were a few, replaced fuses, put all covered back on, put my shield on closed my eyes and threw the switch. She worked.

    More work to do on the clunker but she is up for now.

    I have been at that exact same situation. Done that a few weeks ago.
    Can someone please explain to me -
    Why is there never enough time to do it right the first time, but plenty of time to do it twice?
