- Oct 23, 2004as fate has it. i got into her today and she revved to redline and
wouldn't quit unless it was dogged by a gear. it had happened before
and i discovered it was a fuse loose. i'm getting really frustrated
with the fusebox. I found three that were barely making contact. I
think i'm going to go for a walk in the junkyard and look for a
substitute. i am also planning a trip to the local radio shack to see
if they have any large fuse holders. i can't see not doing a
conversion at this point. perhaps a vigerous cleaning will help...
