Re: Fuse Link Repair?
Considering it broke so close to the splice I'd say yes - you can just cut and recrimp. My only word of advice is if you're going to use a crimp connection (instead of soldering for example), make sure it's weather tight. I like to cut a substantial piece of heat shrink tubing and dope the heck out of the connection with dielectric grease. When you put the heat to the heat shrink, the dielectric grease will prevent moisture from wicking up to the splice.
You can buy new fusable link wire - I think most auto parts stores carry it. But the same care in splicing it to prevent moisture from creating a bad connection still applies.
