manifold on the left side curves down and goes into the engine ports,
there is a little capped tube sticking out. Sticks right out of the

right most of the 12 fuses). Also, when I turn on the hazzard lights
the fifth from right blows as well. Everything else is good as far as
The fuse on the right only blows when I turn on the RIGHT turn signal
(not the left). I figure someone out there has had this problem and
could offer some advice. Since the hazzards flash the same bulb as the

Re: 71 Bus fuses blowing
We have two '71 type 2's We love 'em.
I would look into the brake lite system. they share the same filament.
I believe the decision to which system lites the bulb is made in the
directional control on the steering wheel.
You have a short . a connection to ground that shouldn't be.
Try to eliminate parts of the circuit and see if you still are grounded.
Use a continuity checker or just wrap an old fuse in aluminum foil to see
if it blows.
and find Speedy Jim, he has a web site that might help.
and Good Luck. I hate electrical problems.
Money.. What a concept!
