The characteristics of a blade fuse and a fuse link are quite different, I wouldn't interchange them.

Those look good, Only thing is the standard fuselink is 40A and it looks like the lowest this place does is 60A. would that not be too high a rating?

hmmm ive got a 40 amp midi fuse and holder to go in now, wouldnt it be better to have some thing that would just blow in the event of a problem rather than heat up and melt ect ? not sure how to go about it now.
Cheers

At the end of the day its there to protect your electrics ad rather have a fuse over nuthing but at least with a fuse u can change ut to get you home unless you carry a spare fuselink with you all the time
