Accessory wiring distribution box


Recommended Posts

Evening all.   I'm adding a complete do-over of the wiring in my 90 to the ever growing list of things to get sorted while it is all in bits, and I'm sure someone on here posted up a link to some neat looking distribution boxes. Something with a common bus, or maybe two for +ve/-ve, space for fuses, a few relays, all that good stuff. The only trouble is now I can't find it again.

Vehicle Wiring Products has always been my go to, and they have something close : https://www.vehiclewiringproducts.co.uk/c-52-fuse-boxes-fuses/c-122-blade-fuse-holders/p-352-12-way-fuse-box  

I guess I could use that and mount the relays separately. They also have a load of modular stuff that looks promising, but I can't see a module for standard sized blade fuses, and I'd rather not use the mini's, just so they are the same as the fuses I have in the original loom.

Has anyone used something similar, or know of any decent alternatives? I'm open to completely different suggestions as well if there is a better way to do things

Following this to see suggestions. The really neat looking ones that I have seen are from our North American friends who who use the Bussmann fuse and relay box. I can't find anyone who sells them in Europe, only direct from the US with high shipping and probably customs fees to pay. I have found This alternative, but does use mini fuses. 

I do like the idea of protecting everything by directing the positive supply through a maxi/midi fuse box like This rather than taking the whole lot off the starter solenoid terminal as an unfused supply.

I have one here that I no longer need now…

Specs here… https://www.waytekwire.com/item/46354/EATON-s-Bussmann-Series-15401-2-0-1-0A-RFRM/

You can have it for £100 for the unit, relays, fuses, terminal pins, plugs etc. , or if you want the tails and Deutsch connectors, wired as is in the photo, add another £90 - the connectors are expensive and I can use them elsewhere. This additional cost is just the cost of the connectors including their respective mating halves and terminal pins.

cheers Steve

May I ask where you got it from? Was it directly from the US?

Yes from Waytek in US

If the OP doesn't want to take up your offer, I am interested in buying it from you.

Hi Steve, thanks for the offer, but that may be a bit overkill for what I need.

@monkie all yours if you want it!

If you type that item number into EBay it should come up with a bus bar which I’ve used for power distribution. You’d still need fuses and relays but I used a separate box for that. They’re not integrated as with the Bussmann type.
