[j] So I am sittin in my buddies drivway last night, goin to leave, turn the key "CLICK" then nothin, Anyway hook up the jumpers to it and a giant spark comes from a Fusible link on the firewall. Anyway I think my battery has been movin around on the tray and wore a hole in the bottom ( see the green fuzzy around the bottom ) What would cause the link to burn and do I just cut it out and put in a new one?[h]

And would my truck do this to me knowing that I have been working on a Ford in the other driveway?[7]

"What color are ya gonna paint it?

Don't hit me..........

But did you have the cables hooked up right?? That could cause the fusible link to go....

And.... was that the fusible link? Or the front clip ground wire??

I believe on the Chevs of that era the fusible links are off the positive terminal at the starter, not near the battery. Fords have the fusible links near the battery/starter relay.

There is however a ground wire that usually runs from the negative terminal to the rad support... and I am wondering if that is what you saw burn...
Follow the main negative (ground) cable to the engine block or alt bracket, and check the connection. Remove the cable and clean the connection to be sure.

OK....that's enough thinkin' now[e]

Hope this helps. [3]

:( OK here's the daylight news on this prob. I went over in the light today, just like I thought, my now broken battery tray rubbed a small spot on the bottom of the battery, there is what looks like a small arc spot on the tray. While I was there I used an inline fuse where the fusible link once was, got power to the truck again only to have it blow at the turn of the key[?] So what else could of grounded out?


Oh and buy the way its an 88[22]

Love those electrical problems don't you! do you have headers and if so check to see if the starter wire isn't melted to a header or exhaust pipe.

Shit always happens

I agree with Broncoo... Or... hack the back of that burban off and make the rear top removable... kinda like what broncoo did with his... heh heh. I am just dying to cut some sheet metal... Then buy my 11" lift springs... and use a bb and 44's...
