Driving by the neighbor's house I notice that they where throwing out a bike and decided to take it off there hands. Knowing nothing at all about the bike decided to do some reseach. It a 1955 Evans 700 made in Plymouth, Michigan worth approx. $600.00 to $800.00.

Final some nice weather in Michigan. Started working on the 12v system, drove all over today looking for a 50-60 amp fuse holder and thinking living in the Motor City wouldn't have a problem finding one on a Sunday, wrong, the only place was Radio Shack, pricey at $12.99, but very slick. Hook up the running lights and everything worked..........toastie

I'm following the attached diagram which calls for a fuse at 55 amps and no greater than 18" from the battery..............toastie

Toastie,

I noticed your fuse holder is for a quick-blow fuse. This will probably work, but the reason that a thermal fuse is shown in the diagram is that when you have completely dead battery, the inrush current can be, like, infinite (in theory) and it will blow a quick-blow. What you want is a thermal fuse so that it will cycle on and off until the charge level gets up enough to lower the charging current--it doesn't take much time to do this, maybe a minute or two.

The other solution is to never allow the battery to get below 20% charge. This is a good idea for another reason--lead acid batteries that are discharged below 20% suffer increased damage and loss of life.

You can get thermal fuses in many ratings at almost any good RV parts place. And they don't require a holder---just crimp a couple of lugs on the ends of your wires.

Thanks very much Zep, want to do the job right, below is a picture of a 50 amp that features a cycling automatic reset. Is 50 amp good enough?

Bought a A7-Way Junction Box and decided not to use it, just to small. Going with twist-on wire connectors, wires and twist-on wire connectors are color coordinate with colored electrical tape, much easer to work with. Also added Marinco TV telephone inlet today.

You weren't doing it wrong, but your quick blow had the potential for a problem if the battery was flat.

The 50-amp auto-reset (I call them thermal fuses because when they cool down, they reset) is more than enough.
