Ray 7/31/2012If you ad just a wire and there is a direct short , you could burn out other components. Why did the fusible leak burn in half?
HouseCallAuto 7/31/2012I believe that the fuse link you are referring to is a 10 gauge wire. You need to replace it with this for example >> http://www.amazon.com/.../B0040D0QY8
If I am referring to the correct fuse link (I think I am) according to the wiring schematic I looked at, This fuse link would also cut power to the heavy wire at the alternator (confirm that by separating the fuse link you connected and then confirm no power at heavy wire at rear of alternator). In my diagram this fuse link is also color coded Dark Green. Keep in mind that the fuse link that failed almost always failed for a reason. Something on that same circuit shorted out or is intermittently shorting out or has high resistance. After you confirm that I am detailing the correct fuse link I can give you more info about possible causes for the fuse link failure and how to find which one it was.
