Default Re: 1976 Scout Starting Problems

There is a fusible link, but unless all systems are dead in the cabin, that wouldn't be the issue. There is a relay under the dash, but it's jumped across from the factory since you have a standard trans. It's a nuetral start relay that is only utilized with auto trans, so I highly doubt that is your issue. Another common trouble spot is the ammeter gauge since all current must flow across it's terminals. But check the other places already mentioned first.

Sorry I have not replied. Been sick and down for 3 days now and not even got online.

I did not think to mention it in my original post, but Yes, everything inside is dead, so the fuseable link may be my problem. Where is it located at & I will check it? If it is bad, can I replace it with an inline fuse or mini breaker or do I need to go back with the link? Whichever option is best, what size fuse, link or breaker do I need? As always - I appreciate the help.

The fusible link is on the 12ga wire that runs between the large starter solenoid terminal and the BHC. Another name for it is "slow blow fuse". So no, you cannot use an inline fuse as they are not rated for enough amperage and blow too quickly. The proper size of fusible link is 14ga, two sizes smaller than the wire gauge it is connected to. You could use a 50 amp Maxi-fuse in an approved maxi-fuse holder as an alternative.
