yes with key off, also I have no power to the instrument lamp fuse slot on either side, when I have no fuse in the lower left misc slot I have no gauge readings and no draw, when fuse in I have pegged high gauges and a draw

AH!... good info! I'll check the wiring diagram...

I believe I checked the dead one with misc fuse in place, also the misc fuse slot has 2 Siamese red wires feeding it

Here is a wiring diagram for a 72. Shows a red and pink wire joined at that fuse. The pink wire feeds the head light switch. The red wire feeds power to the clock, map light switch, cig lighter, glove box light. Also shown is a "time delay relay" for the keyswitch light and interior lights. Check this area carefully. The "Battery" side of the fuse block is hot at all times. You can disconnect all of the components involved first to see if you have a short in the harness. Then reconnect one at a time to locate the bad component. I hope this helps!

 I've found it helpful to take out the drivers seat (4 nuts) for better access under the dash. Good Luck, I hope it's easy to find!

good idea, the old back doesn't like under dash
