    my friends 91 civic hb. the one i did the MPFI swap on. we just swapp'd in a SOHC ZC. we used the alt. from his D16a6(since the ZC didn't have one). this swap is a basic swap. out with the old in with the new!!

    well we go and turn the car on to the "on" position(not running). and the alt. fuse(#14 fuse) blows. we change it. we do it again. it blows! then we add a 30amp(thats all we had left laying around!)fuse and do it again. it blows!!

    hmmm.........any clues?

    we check'd all the grounds and sensor wires. everything seems good.

    thanks

    i think that a bad ELD or ECU can cause this also but check alt wires first. first i would try unhooking alt and the wires and starting the car that way just keed the big white wire from grouding out in any way shape or forum.
