Looking for terminal/junction block

I'm in the process of rewiring my car and am looking for a terminal stud/junction block/buss bar to run power from. I'd like something protected from accidental shorts. I like the one Madd Electrical has on their website but I can't get a call thru to order a handful. Anyone have a similar product that I can get ordered soon ? I'm about at the point where I need this in the next week.

Re: Looking for terminal/junction block

How much power do you need on each feed? The parts stores carry little Cooper Bussman ATC fuse blocks that will hold six 30A fuses. They've got a stud on them where you connect your power feed and then six male spade connectors that are only hot if you have a fuse inserted.

AutoZone and the like can also get these:

Also if you want to come straight off the battery the parts stores have a nice little stand-off type deal by the battery cables that replaces the nut on your battery cable clamp. You screw it on and then it has a stud on the end where you can mount multiple ring terminals.

Fry's electronics has the isolated buss bars. I bought one "just in case" I ever needed it.

No big power requirements, just swapping to a 10si alt, getting the cabin power off the horn relay and running the headlights direct thru relays. The Cooper fuse panel looks interesting and I wouldn't need fusible links then either... I'm gonna run that by my electrical engineer friend and see if he likes it. It would be easy to mount to a panel and hide in the fender similar to a '67 rs headlight center.

Thanks !!

Re: Looking for terminal/junction block

I used a couple of them. Original stuff still comes across the horn relay but I replaced the fusible link with circuit breakers. Then I ran a new 60A fused cable through the firewall and under the console to one Bussman block for full time power. One of the full time legs of that one feeds a relay which is ignition keyed to supply power to the other block. Anything added to the car is run off either of those.

I used an AGU fuse and holder at the battery for the new power feed like this:

Re: Looking for terminal/junction block

Back awhile ago when ordered a bunch of stuff from Mad, Mark didn't have a lot of his nice junction blocks, and was only bundling them in kits. I found them for a bit more on Corvette Central. American Autowire and Rock auto used to carry them but stopped.

GM Part number is #340409, I think its discontinued.

$14.95

Also I think the alternator boots from AAW make nice covers for this block:

Any place in your area that sells/installs the 10 gillion watt boom box stereos in rice rockets and Escalade's will have terminal blocks like you want.

Re: Looking for terminal/junction block

I bought a couple of these with great plans to use them - just haven't gotten to it yet. Can be found on the web for about $10/ea. http://bluesea.com/category/9/35/products/2314

Re: Looking for terminal/junction block

70's and 80's gm trucks have a straight junction block on the firewall with 5 studs for connections. It's similar to the round one in post 6 but it has multiple studs all connected together. Really cleaned up my wiring for my headlight, fan, and alarm relays.
