Chilton's is failing me........

Hey y'all!
The work on the Suburban goes on. Remember, this is a 1972 4x4 w/307. It looks like I'm gonna have to replace the fuse box, as for some reason, a whole bunch of them blew! I need to find a fuse box diagram, along with what size fuses were used for what function. I think that makes sense, lol.
Thanks!

Doc here,

If you had a whole bunch of fuses blow at once...I'd suspect the harness not the fuse buss..

Carefully unwrap the tape from the firewall side and inspect the bundles..I suspect you'll find a BUNCH of them melted together..that is where you will need the repair if so.

Is your fuse box not marked? like under the fuse or on the box cover? If not, or it's not readable, get one (or write down the info) from one in the boneyard that is clear, that should help, I don't have a layout for a SUB of that year..

Here is one for a "blade type " panel for a GM truck..



and one for a "Glass type " fuse panel for GM truck...



Do either look like yours?

Doc

Electrical....got to love it

I've already contemplated the fact that I'm gonna have to rewire this truck! The previous owner, a twit with one too many beers in his system, got a hold of a pair of wire snips, lol. So I've already got the wiring diagrams saved on the computer. However the fusebox diagram is helpful. Unfortuneately, finding anything this old in a junk yard is a bit of a challenge!
This just joins the list of stuff to do...........but when I'm finished, it's going to be one heck of a truck!

hhhhhhmmmmm....interesting

Hey locknkey!
Whereabouts are you? I've found one '72 Suburban up here, just the body, no engine, but the salvage yard is trying to get a price that is only justified if it was fully restored!
Let me know.

Doc here,

If your going to have to rewire the whole truck anyway, and Can wait until your ready, order a Harness Kit from Ron Francis, or painless, or EZ .. They come with a new pre-wired Fuse buss along with the kit..and is a lot better than trying to "Graft" a used one in to a hacked system..

Doc

And let me add American Autowire to the list - they have added some Chevy OEM replacements lately (I also am not a prewired panel lover such as E-Z and Painless have)
