My wiring diagram shows it on the black feed wire from the ACC post of the ignition switch to the blower switch.

Howard is right. It's usually in an in-line fuse holder,located right next to the blower switch.

Default Thanks guy's ...

Apparently blew the fuse running the blower on my a/c conversion. I think I shorted it out when I was fooling with some wiring from the blower switch and the manual switch I put in for the compressor clutch. After looking at the leg feeding power to both those items I decided to use a 40amp relay triggered from the ignition switch on position to provide power to a fuse block from from a 10ga wire from the batt. on a 40amp circuit breaker. Will have 5 "always on" circuits and 5 switched. Should have just yanked it all and redone every thing in stead of piecemeal like I have, but this is supposed to be my driver so I don't have that luxury of having it down to bare bones like some of my other projects. Thanks again for taking the time to help me out. Mike

Me standing on my head trying to figure out what it is I'm looking for. That ign. switch is a real bear to get out.

Mike, I love the pic. I also like the idea of adding a relay-controlled fuse block. I hope you put it under the hood or in a convenient place.

One peeve I have is, the IN-accessibility of Squrarebird fuses. My aggrivation really escalates when I'm on the road, searching under a dark dash for a fuse.

I always pay close attention to your innovations, Mike.
