Fusible Link Length?
 
1 Attachment(s)
I've installed a 12" fusible link as a replacement for my fried fusible link on the line that charges the battery from the alternator. I showed the OEM part to the guy at the parts store and he gave me a 12" piece of fusible link wire. He told me not to cut it as length matters in these cases (yeah, that's what she said...). Anyways, I've since read online that fusible links should not be longer than 9". Is this one still effective?? It comes out of the package at 12". Thanks!

It should be the same size/length as the one that came out. Can you tell what length the old one was? I've seen them in cars from about 5-6" to 8-9", get as close to stock as you can? Make sure to solder the ends too, no crimp only connections, a poor crimp can increase resistance and increase heat...

Darn! It was 6". Looks like I will have to be pulling that one out! Thanks very much for the information - helped me out.
