Re: fusible link substitute?
Okay - here's where I fess up to being a DORK...
AFTER I went in and cut the dead link out, I looked at the source wire an immediately realized I was not dealing with small gauge - prolly more like 12 or maybe even 10. Put the strippers on it and sure enough... 12 gauge. The Haynes was wrong. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img] (Shocked! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img] Shocked, I tell you!)
So BACK to the store I go with not a minute to spare to pick up a 14 gauge fusible link - of which they had PLENTY. Crimp it in, cover it up, bolt up the solenoid and battery, and BINGO - fires right up.
Now all I have to do is put the whole durn DASH back together from tearing it all down looking for a short! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img]
Thanks for the advice jes the same! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img] At least this one's solved!
