anl vs. Mini anl... size difference?

9 posts in this topic

alright heres the deal... im going to a comp this weekend and the maximum fuse size i can run is a 70a... problem is that i cant find a regular size 70a anl fuse... they are all mini anl's... my question is how much of a difference is there in size dimensions? will a mini anl fit in a regular anl fuse holder???

if all else fails, i can just run my 60a fuses... but i want to be able to burp as much power as i can for as long as i can... i figure the 70 will give me a better chance to put up higher numbers... fyi im running a sae1200d which is fused at 150 amps... im guessing the 60a wont last long...

feel free to discuss and give insight... id like to know all i can about it

buy 70A spade fuses and solder on wire leads to them adn then attach to the fuse block, it will be ghetto rigger but will give you the most povwer

my knu fuse holder would work with a mini anl cause the innards move about inside of it, and so will that one i got but it takes 4guage or till i bore it out and tap it so i can use it if i need to, it takes a 4guage wire with a somewhat "compression" fitting to hold the wire in and i think its pure shit, i was gunna sell it but i payed to much for it so im gunna make it so i can use it

heres some pics of it tho to make some sence of what im talking bout, i tryed to solder some 0guage in it but i used lead solder rather than that flux core silver solder i normally do and made a fukin mess lol

heres a pic of it took apart

to sum it up, wire goes threw that copper deal and folds over that lil ring thing and then it screws into the grey thing and it presses the wire to the copper fitting to hold it in, then it slides in the plastic thing and it moves to either end so i can run a mini anl if i wanted to but i got regular anls so im ok

but why the hell do people make people in comps run smaller fuses? to make it fare or so they dont blow shit?

midi fuses

anl fuses

and an oldschool secrete, u can get a multi fuse agu fuse block then run the wires back threw a dist block to up the guage again and then do it that way, ive seen a few do that on here befor, and the princeple behind it is its harder to blow multi fuses of a lower amp than 1 fuse of same amp combined, it worked for them so i guess give it a shot?

heres a pic of what im talking bout useing

go in 2 4guage and out 4 8guage and run that to a 1/0 connector or something and theres ur fuseing, prolly could get 4 30amp fuses or something in it, i dont think they make 20 amp fuses in agu but lemmie check, ya 20 amp agu fuses http://www.darvex.com/store/pc/viewPrd.asp?idproduct=150&idcategory=58

and u can use meade as a cupon code to get like 20% off ur final order too, hope this makes sence
