Dave, thanks for your response but my ground connections and connectors are truly pristine. My car is a ground up restoration and has only seen a few baths since it's rebirth. Careful attention was taken to all of the grounds and wiring when it was assembled.
914 and the 911 electrical are very much the same they even share the same color codes on the wiring. Somewhere a short of some kind is bleeding into the system but why all of a sudden, i know the Alternator does not sound normal on start up so i suspected it, and the ignition switch has been used for over 35 years so that too may be where to look.
I cant get to the Alternator in my 914 as easy as you can in the 911's so just looking for advice. i will test the ohms to see what i come up with.

Here are some pictures of the not working so good - 914
