Fusible links? Where? What?

I have the 80 20r with the bulbs blowing and charging problems in the thread below.

Where are the fusible links and what do they look like?

Trying to enjoy a California vacation.

I have a pink one labeled--"AM2" at 30A
I have a green one labeled--"AM1 at 40A
I have a black one labeled--GLOW.AM1 at 80A

they look like big fuses, with a plastic see through top sop you can see if they're burnt out or not

Thanks again Mountain.
The fuses on my truck are the old glass ones, pre-plastic like your 86.
and the fuse box is totally different. No fusible links like yours.

not having any luck, cant even find a photo. Maybe it looks like an "inline" fuse, where a wire is connected to a plastic tube that has a fuse inside the tube and a wire coming out of the tube. You would have to push and twist the plastic tube to open it and see the fuse inside.

If you're willing to give me your phone number, I can run to the auto parts store and see what they say.

fuseable link is a big wire from battery to fuse box,, not the big red wire but a thick rubber type wire from positive terminal to fuse box, it usually about six inches long

if it was bad, would the battery start frying all the electrical components, lights etc? What do you have to do to replace it?

I still haven't found any fusible links. Do 79-83 trucks even have them?
