<VV> 65 AC fuses

Many years ago there was a VV discussion related to preservation of the A/C
control switches that had become unobtainable. Midst of the discussion, I
suggested adding a relay to protect the fan speed switch of other year
models, in the same way as as was done on '65 models. Larry Claypool
responded that there was no such relay on the '65 models. The diagram in
the manual was not correct. My Corvairs with A/C have never included a '65
model. I just had the shop manual diagram to go by. So I took his word for
The in-line fuse is shown in the unswitched power feed to the relay. If
Larry was correct that there was no relay there would be no need for an
in-line fuse. You may be searching for a phantom.

Go to the Specifications Section 11 last page of the 65 shop manual. It says
2 fuses: 1 inline and 1 in fuse box (both 15 amp). The wiring diagram on
page 15-38 shows the inline fuse coming of the relay through a 12 GA. Red
wire to the ignition switch.
BTW the 66 wiring for AC only has the 15 amp fuse in the fuse box because
the relay is no longer used see page 15-4.

I'm terrible at reading wiring diagrams but I think the 1965 shop manual
shows a 20 amp in line fuse for the compressor. Am I right? And if so where
is it physically located? Many thanks.
