Engine bay needed a proper distribution block for ages. I was connecting the alternator to the starter with an inline fuse. Let's take a look.........

Oh oh.. this in-line fuse was working but..hmmm...




Now some key points....
- Same amp fuse was used as in the fuse box (80amp)
- This setup was on it's 2nd summer

There are several factors involved here to cause this:
- alternator is old but does read proper voltage when on
- alt power wire is longer and 4AWG

A 100amp fuse should do the trick. On on to installing the power distro block. This took a long while to figure out how to get it positioned properly.

Here you see the main power wire from the trunk coming into the bay.


I used two existing 10mm holes to secure a bracket to the car. Then secured the distro block to it.


Test fit. Right under the coolant reservoir.


Just need a 100amp inline waterproof fuse for the alternator line, but this will be the general look. There's a cover for the unit as well.
