I'll probably catch heck for this but when I last lost a g.p. fuse I traced
it out on a piece of aluminum house siding and cut it out to get me by. It
seems similar in gauge and I kept the dimensions correct. It has been there
for a year or so. I know I need to get some of the real ones though.
Hey -3 here Christmas morning and my jetta parked in a unheated garage with
no block heater (yet) started up. Stalled once or twice but took right off
Bart Wineland and ALL : I was a bit hasty saying NO SIDING ---
the fact is that Bart was on the right track. What is the most practical
limping on fuse anywhere ?------ yup BEERCAN (for me) POP cans for you guys.
Trace it out like BART suggested ---sand it CLEAN on both sides and bolt in place.
I shall comme back and let you all know the exact amp rating. And the
correct gauge and with of POP can to use. Cans here are 3 thou. Inch.
can be cut with ordinary schissors. If one thickness burns double up.
Great idea Bart ---that one will go down in my LIMPING HOME book.
PS : Zinc foil is good and some wineland bottles have a cover made of TIN
Tin is great. In Denmark poor peoples fuse during the # 2 War ? aluminium foil.
Sometimes I use Shimstock --brass. Let us know if you have good Ideas
