i have a 1998 85hp evinrude, and a 1998 15hp evinrude on my boat. and while replacing the battery yesterday, i noticed that there were three of these fuses attached to the battery leads from the motors. they look like they need to be replaced. they are marked as follows.
are these really necessary? and if so do i have to go to a dealer to replace. thanks for the help
after using just what little brain i have left, i put the charged battery back in the boat, and attached the pos and neg wires and then touched off the wires one at a time, and found that one is the bilge, one is the rear livewell, and the other is the front livewell. i think i will still inline fuse these. thanks again.
