Wiring help

I just installed this fuse box, but i'm not sure if I have the green wire in the right spot. Is it ok to just connect it to common? thx

Yup. The problem with fuses is that when you really need a surge of power, they crap out on you. This box alleviates that problem.

You should upgrade those fuses to copper pipe.

finally, someone who understands electrical. these fuses are guaranteed to provide current 100% of the time without tripping.

I'm familiar with this system. The wire is actually the fuse.
