Grounding is very important.  Charging systems especially.

Cleaned the ground points. Installed a better ground cable. now, the test light comes on with the clip on the + and the other end anywhere on the block. Going to put another one between the block and body. At least I got lights, instruments and starter circut back!

Keeping my fingers crossed on the bulkhead connector. So far, all the dash lights and gages work fine......so far
 
Tomorrow, run a temp fuel line to the pump and see if she'll run for more than a few seconds worth of gas dribbled down the carb.

Typically, it's the charging system and heavy feeds that suffer the most in the connectors
