    Re: Fuse question

    prolly 150 -200 i would think ,the fuse is just really to protect the alt if something was to happen to the battery

    Ok, I have a 200 so if that's alright I won't have to buy one.

    Re: Fuse question

    yea you should be good ,like i said its only there because if the battery does something weird like send voltage back to the alt ,the fuse would blow before damaging the alt
