& I'm not sure what I'm looking for.
I was replacing the battery in my '79 with an Olds 403 & wasn't paying
attention & crossed the battery leads. Yeah, I know, duh. Now the
car's dead. Crawling under the car's not my favorite thing to do, so
I'd like to make the trip as short as possible.
I can't readily get at the solenoid connection but found a couple of
odd connectors. One had been previously wired up poorly. The wires
were twisted together & wrapped in electrical tape. Here's a pic:
Is this the fusible link? If not, what should I be looking for?
Not one but two fusible links...
If one is open be sure to check the circuit it feeds for shorts (alternator,
etc.) before powering it up after repair. Google about repairing them to get
the correct wire size, bigger is NOT better in this case.
