Re: compressor power wire fuse size?
Not sure...it shouldn't take much. I'm going to guess it draws about 1amp engaged. Put your digital volt meter in place of the fuse. Configure the meter to read on the 10amp scale. Engage the clutch and see what it draws. A 5 amp fuse is good for anything less than 5 amps in most cases - except where solid state loads are concerned like radios and such. Oh and be sure to put your meter back to a voltage reading configuration afterward to prevent a mishap later.
