40 amp glass AGC fuses for 71 Univolt

Anyone know a source for 40 amp glass AGC fuses. They are the middle size glass fuse the size most commonly found. I can get 30 amp pretty easy 35s a little harder but can't find a source for 40s.

Lacking a supply source, anybody got a how to do workaround suggestion, like putting in a 40amp 12v DC breaker.

You could do that or put 2 20 amp fuses in parallel...

A "good" Hardware store can get them, normally need to be ordered. Also, Andy at Inland RV has them in stock.

Marshall,

I get my 40 Amp fuses from Anglers Marine in Anaheim. You might try a boat supply store.

Try a local auto parts house. I have seem them at the mom and pop's auto store, O'Reilly's and Advance Auto. Matter of fact I just purchased some earlier this week. They were about $2 each.
They would also have them at a car stereo shop where they still use the large AGU fuses to power amplifiers.

Throw the univolt away from you as far as you can. Get a decent charger and make life much more enjoyable. Whatever kind of batterys you use, will love you for it.

Just to be clear I need 40 amp AGC fuses not AGU. The AGC fuses are 1 1/4" long and 1/4" in diameter.

I have tried dozens of auto parts stores. No one has them. No one can order them. The highest amperage I have found available is 35 amps, on special order.

I think the fuses at VTS and Inland are the larger glass fuses. I will check and would love to be wrong.

Fuse Source

I get them at NAPA. If they are not in stock they can be ordered and picked up in a few days.

fuses

Aren't these used by auto stereophiles.The fuses used on the battery cables as they enter the fuse panels for positive/negative on my '79 are available at any auto sound installer in 50 amp and smaller...about 1/2 the size of a aaa battery.$1.00 each.Matt

I would have never looked where I am going to recommend, but I stumbled into them there. Try looking at custom car audio stores. Don't try Best Buy/Circuit City, go to the local car stereo shop. They will typically have them since the stereo amps pull upto 50 amps. Good luck.
