Hi David,

It is easy to reverse the wiring  when replacing the front truck.   Try turning the front truck 180 degrees and see if it runs. If you did not change any of the wiring to the switches this may do it.  All it takes is one wire connected wrong and you get a short.  If it still does not  run maybe you can send a photo of what you did and the connections you made. and we will do our best to get you going!
