Like the boys mentioned prior. 90% of electrical problems can be traced back to a bad ground.

Doesn't take much to have good looking cable resting on some metal object and just a little bearing of the coating one it worn thru to make contact. Buy some wire ties and go around pulling wires away from things and check for spots. Might even spark/arc a little if on a big batt cable, or bigger feed wire. Check from starter too and any amp gauge if you have one. New enough to have gas shut off at carb? starter system for ignition? Fuse box? My PK had a fuse box, loose connectors for fuses and I replaced that with better one. It also had the key switch loose and kept turning around till wires would up behind it, and finally wore thru and shorted against themselves. Check for odd things like that too. Good Luck!
One more thing....is your battery anchored down OK? Have seen where they move around and cables get worn from that action.
