I have a question about the power wire running from the alt. positive terminal to the battery positive terminal. Is the fuse in between these two points suppose to be rated for the max amp. of the wire or the max amp. of the alternator? Thanks guy's for any help!
mat i have an 06 mustang and i was wondering the same ?. I am in the process of doing the big 3...done all put bat+ to alt+. My stock is not fused. I was worried that if i didnt fuse between these points i could get a short and batt blow up..and so on. SO i would be fine not fusing, b/c that would save me a trip into town.lol
sorry havnt been online to answer. anyway you should be fine without a fuse. just keep the wire kinda short and possibly wrapped in looming and strapped to the sides so its out of the way and nothing can happen to it.
actualyl chad iv found out that is a bad idea. on the alt. end you should not connect the stock wire just wrap it up. i cant remember exactly why i guess because it has the possiblity to short out and whatnot
The stock wire can also start on fire though if too much current gets sucked through it and it becomes too hot lol.This is very rare because electricity takes the path with the least resistance which would be your thicker wire because of a more solid connection to the resistor.
