You do know that there are 2 exposed fuses behind the light switch.1 constant hot and 1 hot with the key.
These are in addition to the two link fuses you found.
You really have to bend the ball to see 'em!

I beleve the Brake Switch is fine. When I connect my test-istrument, and adjust it into Ohm, and hold one line on each conector on the switch, the instrument change numbers when someone is pressing the brake pedal.

Used this evening to take out the fuel tank, as I have a "sweating issue" around the fuel line conector. I found a guy who know how to solve stuff like this. Heīs good, and cheep

Will dive deep down in the dash during the weekend to find these two missing fuses. Stay tuned.

See if you have 12 volts on one side of the stop light switch all the time when the key is on. And 12volts on the other side of the switch only when the brakes are applied. Also, see if there is no continuity from either side of the stop light switch to the case of the switch. My switch shorted internally and blew the fuse up under the dash. My fuse was a 14 amp SFE in the 60 Tbird not sure what the 58 should have. Wish I were in Sweden to help you. Pay my way and I'll fix it for you. tee hee.

Lucky him and not you Anders, at least you might get a brand new tank out of it? The time it will take to get one shipped to you might be a hassle though?
Cheers

The tank look like sh*t now, to be honest, and I donīt know if it fit anymore...
Donīt know if the sender was broken or not in the explosion either, and how well his new welds are done as it separated in some areas...
Need to try it anyway, so i can move the car. Will do it tonite.
I ordered a new one from Larrys T-bird and Mustang Parts last night......
Hope itīs a fine product.

I found that black plastic part, with all the wires going into it, and as itīs just behind the lightswitch, I guess itīs that one.
On this part, looking from undernieth, I saw where itīs place for two fuses.
Now, One was there, but the other was not there at all. Whatīs also made me confused, is thet the one that was there, that piece was kind of loose, and it looks as it should be like that.
Is this alright?
And, shall I try to chase the missing one? I mean, looking at the wire diagram, there should only be one ...
And if I need it, anyone who know what it should say when it comes to the tecnical specification?

Iīm close now guys, donīt give up on me just yet.

I manage to squeeze in the exploded fuel tank also, and apart from that it looks like sh*t, it works, and have to do until the new arrive.

Make shure you've got both of those fuses in.I believe their both 15 amp.(Correct me if I'm wrong guy's) Thats always where you want to start.
You can bend the tabs that hold the fuse slightly to get a proper connection.

The Brake light fuse is not on the light switch. At least, it isn't on my 60. The Brake light fuse is up under the dash up near the ignition switch. Somewhere on this forum is a pictute of an exposed rear of the dash board. I'll try to find that and post it here later. My fuse says 14SFE which means that it is rated at 14 amps and blows without delay.
