I have never tested any of these but fixed many of them over the years.
You would be suprized what people have put in there fuse panels.
The one on your list that is missing is 1/2 rigid copper pipe in place of a 60 amp fuze.

Yep....... a popular fix for the old screw in round fuses was a copper penny. :frightened:

Most forum spam is aimed at the search engine robots; Google, Yahoo, Bing, etc. The premise is that when the robots find all those links in the posted message the robots will look at that as a good thing and raise the level of that website in the returned search results.

PLEASE DO NOT USE ANY HARBOR FREIGHT FUSES. THE RATED AMPS ARE ERRATIC, WITH MOST FUSES FAILING OR WORKING AT 80 AMPS

That 16A fuse looks pretty cheesy to me ;-)

I don't see a .22 Cal LR for use in a 3AG holder such as in an old car.

Frog gigging

(1996) Two local men were seriously injured when their pickup truck left the road and struck a tree near Cotton Patch on state Highway 38 early Monday morning. Woodruff County Deputy Dovey Snyder reported the accident shortly after midnight Monday.
Thurston Poole, 33, of Des Arc, and Billy Ray Wallis, 38, of Little Rock, are listed in serious condition at Baptist Medical Center. The accident occurred as the two men were returning to Des Arc after a frog-giggin' trip.
On an overcast Sunday night, Poole's pickup truck's headlights malfunctioned. The two men concluded that the headlight fuse on the older model truck had burned out. A replacement fuse was not available, but Wallis noticed that the .22 caliber bullet from his pistol fit perfectly into the fuse box next to the steering wheel column. Upon inserting the bullet, the headlights again began to operate properly and the two men proceeded on eastbound toward the White River Bridge.
After traveling approximately 20 miles, just before crossing the river, the bullet apparently overheated, discharged and struck Poole in the right testicle. The vehicle swerved sharply to the right, exiting the pavement and striking a tree. Poole suffered only minor cuts and abrasions from the accident but will require surgery to repair the other wound. Wallis sustained a broken clavicle and was treated and released.
"Thank God we weren't on that bridge when Thurston (shot his intimate parts off) or we might have been dead," stated Wallis. "I've been a trooper for 10 years in this part of the world, but this is a first for me. I can't believe that those two would admit how the accident happened," said Snyder.
Upon being notified of the wreck, Lavinia, Poole's wife, asked how many frogs the boys had caught.
