fuse box

Electrical Advice on a 1970 442
My fuse box is dead on the hot at all times side. How many wires and what colors feed this box and are they coming from the horn relay?
If I remove the 2 screws from the fuse box on the inside how does this come apart? Don't want to damage it.

See my thread on "Fuseable link replacement".
The link feeds the majority of the power to the fuse box.

There is one red wire coming off the fusible link (at the horn relay) to the fuse panel...

I still don't have a service manual or any $. But do have an electrical cluster. I found the 10G red wire cut back 6" from the horn relay I can read contanuity from the wire to the fuse box but when I apply power to it the starter turns over. Everything has been routed around the fusebox. Breaks light are pluged into the side of a fuse on the ACC side of the box.

I know get a service manual.

Get this one. When I start the car the floor lights come on while the key is in the start position only.

Original auto car now 4 speed.

Try this one... It is for a 72 but could help you some... The 70 442 will have some differences int he engine harness...

Hope this helps...
