I used the 5A fuses in "waterproof" individual fuse holders that I got from a local Marine Supply store that look like this:


As you might imagine, anything from a Marine Supply store ain't cheap, considering what it is anyway.

Hindsight being what it is, I'd suggest trying to find a waterproof fuse holder block. Much neater install I would think, and if this block had a clear housing, and accessible, you might be able to see what fuse blew without taking each individual holder apart.

I'll try to snap a pic of my gaggle of wires later and email you.

In my opinion, good move on going with the OE set-up, they ought to last at least another 100,000 miles and should be hassle free, assuming you got new POS's as well.

I'd suggest you make the splice, far, far away from the junction where the wires will exit the head at the coil pack cover.

Good Luck.
