I am going over my '49 Silver Wraith. I am not familiar with making my own fuses and have been unable to find any posted information,
I ordered some fuse wire from Replacement Parts Inc.. Are all my fuses single strand wire of the same guage wire, other than the central main fuse? Wiring diagram seem to show double strand on the cental fuse, but mine is looped 3 times, which is correct?
Thank you.

The main fuse should be three strands of No.32 SWG tinned copper wire and the circuit fuses one strand.
