Feeling a little helpless today

-after overhaul i decided to try a dry upstart today, Purpose was to see if start-motor worked right.

I did this with no fuel,no spark ,no water and logic module unplugged.

As my wife turning engine-and i watch engine-then happens somthing strage - i notice a smoke and smell behind head- after some searching i found that the earth-wire from manifoid to firewall was very hot and caused the smoke.No damage so far.

I cant find any sence in this.-still i am an amatuer and there must be an explanation.
