    Default fusible link

    I believe I need to replace the fusible link for my starter. The Haynes manual doesn't really say anything about it except to put it in the wiring diagram. Can anyone give me a clue on what I replace it with and how I replace it? Thanks

    Replace it with a new fusible link! Available at MSA and Victoria British to name a few. Under $10.00 It is connected to the starter by a ring connector and the other end plugs into the engine bay wiring harness. 5 minute job.

    I don't suppose I could get one at an auto zone or kragen? I haven't seen a wiring harness in the bay, could you tell me about where it is? Thanks!

    I doubt AutoZone or Kragen would have one. Personally, I don't buy anything from those places except chemicals like oil, cleaners etc. My experience has been that they carry JUNK parts.

    Look at your starter. It is the wire that plugs into the rest of the cars wiring. You cannot miss it if you look there. It just looks like a wire with a ring connector on one end and a plastic plug-in connector on the other. approx 4 to 6 inches long

    That is just the thing. I have replaced a broken starter that didn't have a fusible link on it, so I don't have any reference. I'll see what I can find. Thanks for the help.

    You'll still see the connector on the wiring that runs the length of the framerail. It has a pigtail near the starter location that the link plugs into. Get the link, attach it to the starter, plug into the harness.

    Your original post said "I believe I need to replace the fusible link for my starter." You didn't say anything about it being missing.
