    Im trying to hook up to an ignition power source for a gauge. Looking at the fuse block directly into the glove box. Is the ignition wire fuse the 2nd from the left on a 69 Coronet ? I can’t quite tell. My letters on the block are rubbed off.

    Thank you, my friend. Very kind of you.
    What’s your white wire there, if you don’t mind telling ?

    You know you can crimp a 6.3 mm female spade on those wires and securely fasten the wires to the back of the block using the 6.3 mm male spades ? This tool right here is one of my all time favorite tools. It makes factory like crimps. About $15 on EBay or Harbor Freight.

      If you never used them. It takes a couple practice connector pieces to get the hang of it. Once you do, you’ll kick yourself in the ass. Wishing you learned about them a long time ago.

        I have something that looks like that. Unfortunately I don't think I've ever used it. I'll take a look tomorrow.
        Sometimes I'm guilty of taking the path of least resistance. However, just sticking the wires in there and using a small screwdriver to press down on the fuse works well, or well enough.
        Being on this forum has made me realize I need to try a little harder on occasion. Thanks for the tip.
