Hi All,

I was looking at my engine control panel (Universal 5424) and I do not have any type of fuse/circuit breaker between the power source and momentary (hold) switch and the glow plugs. The schematic shows a fuse, but no details. I'm thinking I need something here. What are your thoughts? How big should this "fuse" be?

Dave unless you upgrade the whole system you most likely won't find any fuses. Engines (don't quote me on this) with more then 2 glow coils use a relay. Do you also have an ammeter in the engine panel?
When I got the boat the old Universal ammeter had been taken out. The old trailer style harness connectors were still in, so I cut all that out also. I do not have a solenoid in the system either. I'm going to install a circuit breaker at the engine panel I think.
