Keep Blowing Fuses

I need some help troubleshooting a blown fuse issue. I installed an AAW Classic Update wiring harness in a 67 Camaro. All works fine except the 5A fuse labled Guage keeps blowing. When the fuse blows the tach, volt meter, and choke stop working. I'm using a MSD 6AL. Any ideas as to what could cause the fuse to blow?

Choke should be wired to another source.
The correct source, I can't say as I have no references here with me.

I would disconnect the choke wire and see if it still blows the 5amp fuse. The choke is probably overloading the circuit.

Re: Keep Blowing Fuses

Put a test lamp in place of your blowing fuse and start disconnecting pieces of that circuit until the lamp dims. The test lamp acts like a current limiter and gives you visual feedback, not to mention being cheaper and safer than feeding it fuses.
