Fusible link wire gauge
« on: April 29, 2015, 11:52:05 AM »
Can anyone tell me the correct gauge fusible link to use on the 10awg red lead to the voltage regulator on my 1968? The wiring diagram that I have seems to say that the 10 gauge red wire is reduced to 20 gauge wire at the regulator. Some wiring diagrams do not have a fusible link at the regulator at all. Is the output of the alternator a factor in determining the correct size? The original looks like about a 18awg or thereabouts.

TIA, Mike.
