Fused Neg. at panel??

I have a 1978/31 with the original fuss panel. There are fusses on the neg. buss bar on the panel. I have never seen fusses on the neg. before? I have a problem with one of the main fuss holders not conducting from the buss bar it is riveted to. I was considering eliminating it or them. I have an ItelliVolt meter that joins the two batteries before they reach the panel anyway. Does anyone know why they are there and what if any the consequences may be to eliminate them? If I need to leave them I may use the one by it's self that works coming from the InteliVolt since they are combined about 6" away anyhow.
