You have some funky electrical symptoms - which can be related to a failing or failed fusable link. Your fusable link looks like it's been cooked, so my suggestion is to test the fusable link to see if it's functional. The test device you need is an electrical multi-meter - available for less than $20 at any auto parts store. It has many different tests you can do, in the case of your fusable you want to test for continuity - ie to see if current is flowing through the fusable link or if it's burned out. A fusable link is a slow to fail fuse. It will take higher current longer. The test is easy to do. If you have no continuity, then you know your fusable is fried and that's the source of the problems.What do you mean "continuity"?

Doug, OP said his dash gauge is jumping, so continuity may be intermittent - it maybe different in motion than static if the FL connector is borked. Good to hook up the meter's leads and give the harness a wiggle....in the case of your fusable you want to test for continuity - ie to see if current is flowing through the fusable link or if it's burned out.
