Jimer, yes there wshould bne a fuse hold in the dash. from left to right, the holes are for ... choke, optional cig lighter, fuseholder, light switch, and ignition switch. I believe it calls for a 20 amp fuse. It goes between the ignition bat terminal and the light switch power in if I remember correctly. I dont believe anything else is fused. what wires did you manage to burn? If they were to the gener/regulator, starter/solenoid, those arent fused from the factory, just the accessories like lights and cig lighter.
Thats what I gathered when I made my new wire harness.
Reading the manual tells me the fuse is a 20amp fuse. It also says it only fuses the lighting system, which is how I remember it. The fuse holders can be readily had at most electrical shops and just goes between the batt terminal on the ignition switch and to the backwards "L" pad on the light swtich, not sure what/if its labeled. I can post those specific pages of the manual if you needem.
