If you disconnect the negative battery cable, then but a test light between the cable and the post, you will see it light up if there is a short. One by one you can disconnect accessories, and when the light goes out, you have the culprit!.
BTW, I had a similar problem, but it turned out the brand new battery I bought was bad!
On the 12v conversion, make sure you either have a 12v coil with an internal balast resistor, or that you have a balast resistor before the points, or you will fry the points. Don't ask how I know.
