    Working on an old '77 C-60 with a bbc. Have an issue with the + into the alternator and main feed. Has power from the starter out of the fuseable link but looses it up to the alternator and main feed into the cab. Rather than mess with the harnes I want to eliminate the old and replace with a seperate wire. To update from a fuseable link what would I need to accomplish? I'm thinking of one of the new style 2 prong large fuses that are found in newer vehicles. What amp should this be?

    If I remember correctly that wire feeds the dash and is accessories, if you have the equipment find out what the max amperage that will go through the wire. Example- if 30 amps run through the wire at its highest load you could put in a 35 or 40 amp fuse.

    I would think you would be good with a 30 amp fuse. Just make sure all your connections are tight and if I were you I would solder all the terminals.

    Thanks. Solder is the only way to go
