the fuse block is locate ON the light switch.

The light switch and the fuse are one.

IF you look under the dash to the drivers side of the steering wheel, you will see it there UNDER the dash.

There are only 5 fuses... if you are going through the trouble of replacing one ... replace then all. also... clean the contacts with a little sand paper.  this is a young mans job..

you have to be a contortionist to do this.

The Internet is a great place to find info... Like the amazing site.

Good Luck, Gus

I can help on most American passenger cars built between 1930 and 1970, and Imperials through 1983. I have over 50 years experience in restoring and maintaining antique and classic cars, including 20 years operating a classic car repair shop. I am now retired, but I am willing to help with any questions of a technical or mechanical nature. I have more experience with Packard, Studebaker, Hudson, Imperial and other luxury makes, but I do have reference material and experience with most makes.

I do not know anything about modifying cars - if that is what you want to know about, pick someone else. I keep them the way the factory built them, and I advise you to do the same, to maintain the value of the car and also for your safety.

I can only handle mechanical or technical questions - I am not a body/paint expert!
