Re: Condensor on my heater fan power wire ???
Brian, thanks for the answer, I'm very familiar with AM (amplitude modulation) noise, I just didn't know the blower motor for the heater was ever included in the list of the items that the General (and perhaps other auto manufacturers) took steps to suppress. Back in the early 90's I earned my private pilots license and most of the communications equipment in general aviation aircraft was/is AM based.
Vic, my answer to one of your two questions would be yes, you can safely eliminate the condenser/capacitor/noise suppressor with the only side effect being that it may allow electrical noise that could be picked up by nearby electronics when the heater blower motor is running. If it were me, I'd leave it as long as the melted insulation on the wire has been dealt with as I don't see it being any significant threat or danger.
As to the fuse rating, I don't know that off the top of my head, but I do know that the blower motor is one of the higher amperage drawing electronic items in our first generation Camaros so I wouldn't be surprised at all if it was a 25 amp fuse.
