Charging circuit

I have a 69 SS/RS that I'm trying to get running again and I'm having a problem with the charging system.I need to find where I can get a fusible link that hooks into the #3 terminal on the voltage regulator. The original that's in there is shot completely. This is the line that runs from the junction block on the radiator support. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks,
Gary

Re: Charging circuit

Checking the AIM manual, #3 wire is red on goes directly to the horn relay buss bar, or ties with the same battery wire/pigtail.

On the VR, F is dark blue to right hand spade of alt,
#20 AWG orange, fusible link, to #16 AWG to left spade on alt plug, both these mentioned wires as viewed from the rear, white wire left, blue wire right.
#10 AWG to red wire to/from battery and may connect at horn relay buss bar but is connected to alt BAT teminal maybe a a factory crimp int he harness.
#20 AWG pink to firewall connector.

You might check the Electrical stickies for a picture of VR hook-up.

Re: Charging circuit

These cars are so much fun. I had a small problem too last year at the track. Sounds close to yours. I tried to burn the car down. The only damage was $10.00 worth of primary wire. Here's a shot of the new crimp from the regulator. It's an exact duplicate of the original, except #10 AWG wire out. (thicker)


To prevent a recurrence I installed a split rubber hose over the sharp edge of the radiator support that caused the dead short. (Highly recommended)


Wanna see the short? Ok, here ya go;
