Accessory terminal hook up in fuse box?
« on: June 07, 2013, 05:54:07 am »
I'm hooking up a Hood tach on my 70B2
What's the best way to hook up to the accessory terminal in my fuse box?


Thanks for any help

Contact Randy below for the Fuse Extender.  It fits into the diagonal slot and has a post to attach a ring-type wire connection.  I installed mine with the fuse box in-place on the firewall.

I just replied to your PM.  Yeah, I have lots of those that I created.  $10 plus $2 shipping.  PayPal is harnesses@fusemail.com

 

Can it be installed with the fusebox in place?  Boy….it helps to get a finger behind the fusebox to tighten the nut down.  I don’t know if you can do that with the green connector still attached, but maybe.  You have to have a fair amount of play on the main bolt and nut, slide the thing in place, and then tighten the nut down.  It’s a carriage bolt, but an oversized one that is impossible to find.  I simply put a finger on the back to keep it from rotating and then tighten down the nut.  Seems to work just fine.

Boss980 - When I installed a tachometer in my 1970 Boss 302, I put a fuse into the unused #2 "accessory feed," which according to the 1970 Ford Car Shop Manual is 15 amp, to power the tachometer.  I also used it for the tach light, which is on whenever the car is running.  I probably should connect the light to fuse #5, which is for the instrument & cluster lights.
