Re: Pertronix Flame-thrower 12 volt ignition source
I like fusible link better on continuous duty wires and its 2 sizes smaller so 16. 15A is recommended for 14g. You need to make sure the fuse blows before the wires burns. I would use a larger wire from a different source to make sure you have plenty of power. I have used the large purple wires from the bottom of the steering column (neutral lockout). Recently I used a relay on the firewall using the original dist wire to activate it and ran a big wire basically from the alternator via the horn relay (also fused) or a stud like I installed on the firewall that the charging wire from the alternator goes to. You can use that stud to connect other accessories that need full power. (like relays for your headlights)
