You should have a pretty good sized wire go down to the starter and a smaller one that goes to a stud on the back of the alternator on a stock setup.

If it's what I think you mean, they are called fusible links and actually take the place of a big inline fuse. The wire size is VERY inportant if you have to replace one. Too big and it won't burn through until REALLY overloaded. Too small and you might be replacing it a lot. Do a little research on them. I think the concept is pretty cool. My factory manual tells you how to make one if the part is not available and you need one. Most aftermarket manuals mention them too. Sorry for the delayed response on this. Hope it helps you out. By the way, if one does burn on you, you usually have to look at the underside to tell. Why? One of the mysteries of life I suppose. I don't know.

On a lot of earlier first gens there is no link in them. My 87 came from the factory without a fuse link.


The smaller lead on a positive battery cable is the charging wire from the alt.

I'm getting senile in my old age. You're right. The fusible link on my 94 Blazer is between the generator (alternator) and the junction block. Shows what you get trying to go from memory (or lack thereof). I believe my 84 Jimmy has one there too, but I'll have to check. You pricked my curiosity. Thanks for keeping me straight.
