No. But those 80A fusible links are pennies at your local dealer.
No p/n needed. They should have them on hand. Buy two.

This is a good heads-up. These are thin aluminum strips mounted
in a non-weather tight fuse box. They will corrode, especially if
the roads in your area are salted in the winter. I've coated mine
with battery terminal varnish for a bit of protection. In any case,
there is no reason not to have a spare one in your fuse spares box.
