FSS blue fusible link ?
A brief rundown of what I have already done. Finally traced starting problems to the Fuel Shutdown Solenoid intermittently not opening. I can lift it with my hand and it stays open - no surprise.
Unhooked the wiring harness and tested solenoid by jumping it to 12 volts and it works fine on both run and start side. took it off and cleaned it up (probably going to use disk brake caliper grease to lube it unless someone advises me otherwise) Also going to replace the boot as it is deteriorated.
Tested the relay on the firewall and it is also good. Cleaned the contacts on the blue fusible link and the coating just pulled off, wire still intact. The problem is that it does not say anywhere what gauge or size the blue fusible link is. I've read everywhere that it is a 65 amp link, but don't feel like paying $24 for one from genosgarage.com or fostertruck.com when I know I can get one for about $4 at napa. The guy there said that he thought the blue 18 gauge one was a little thin for that many amps.
Soooo, are they color coded and he is wrong or does anyone know what gauge fusible link that I need.
Thanks in advance for any help.
