Hi All,

There's a variety of fusible links that pull from the RHD Driver's Side battery.

The fusible link on the US 80 is a no-brainer to replace and keep a spare of, but the fusible links for the HDJ81 are no longer available.

What is everyone doing with this? Presumably they're a bit of a ticking time bomb.

*Fusible Links - None are available from any of our sources, either new or used. Instead, you can buy fusible link wire from an automotive supply shop and make up sections with crimped ends for repairing fusible links that get blown out. They’re usually rated via square millimetres or cross-section or ampacity when you buy the wire, and you can find the required values in the service manuals for your HDJ81.





Seems like a pain in the ass. Someone want to make some? I’ll buy them

This is what I did. It was quite easy to match up the wire and cost almost nothing with spare wire for next time

@NLXTACY Maybe a Wit's End project?

@NLXTACY Just pulled the engine out of my cruiser, so it will be down for several months during rebuild. Happy to provide you with my fusible links so long as I can get it back eventually. It's a 1990 hdj81.

Yeah of course. I likely won't even need to take it apart.
