    i have the FSM and the owners manual for my 78 and they both have US only diagrams. Just wondering what each of the 8 fuses are for and what amperage is needed for each. Thanks.

    the bottom fuse on my panel is for a shorter fuse - about half the length of the rest of them. there was a 7.5A fuse in there. i think that mine might be different than what you have listed.

    check where your heater is also your horn . easy to check .then we can look from there . you are going from top to bottom of the fuse block right ?? i looked back as far as 1973 as new as 82 and none of them show headlight where you have shown it .headlight should be one down or where your turn/wiper is ??
    oh well who knows . let me no this is interesting
