Thanks 930GT. You called it!! Unfortunately, I had already torn her apart locating the drain. However, the fix was at the starter. Apparently there was some starter repair work done and the small yellow wire on terminal 15a of the starter was overtightened to the point that it bent the connector (the big goofy, it can only go on one way with an 8mm hex nut connector) and it was touching the 30 terminal from the battery, it took a while to rub through the shrink-tubing so the trouble wasn't immediately apparent. What was wrong with the push-on connectors from the early days, aside from the occasional re-tightening with some pliers??
