I have a 50 amp fuse protecting the entire system, but my fuse is back in the rear of the car with the battery. Installing a fuse is not a bad idea though you need to shelter it from heat if installing up by the starter.
I did the exact same serpentine setup. See my post from a couple days ago titled "Help. burned up two alternators" for some important tips on how not to burn up your CS alternator. Another tidbit is regarding the radiator hose. You can use a 68 radiator hose if you shorten the end going to the radiator. See my website for pictures.
