Power Distribution plug behing battery

Power Distribution plug behing battery

Postby ROGUE7474 [OP] » February 9th 2018, 9:54pm

Hello everyone, long time reader first time poster.

I've inherited my dads 1994 Safari. Great van with the exception for the poorly designed Power Distribution Plug located behind the battery. (borrowed pic from another post)

This damn thing causes all kinds of problems. Van not starting, A/C not working and what ever other problems you might think that gremlins are causing. I would like to bypass this thing all together. After reading several posts here that different members have done this successfully, I'm going to give it a go. After doing some searching on the net, I came across this part that is used in both Auto/Marine. (pic and website below)

My question to everyone is: What size fuses do you recommend for this fuse block? or if this can be used at all?

The specs are 100A Maximum for the block and 30A Maximum for each fuse. I'm not sure what the Fusible links are rated for in Amperage. Would I use a higher amp fuse in the block so the fuse would blow before the Fusible link? or the other way around?

Any help would be greatly appreciated or any other parts or suggestions too.

Thanks
David

Should work just fine.

Fuses are to protect the wiring, so fuse for the wire size.
