I've got a 64 ElCamino and finally decided to protect the wiring. What size fusible link do I need near the battery in the main power wire? The auto parts store didn't have a listing and the generic Fusible links only went to 14Ga. (no 12 or 10) but the links say use 2 wire sizes smaller than the wire. So- - - what is the correct one - 14Ga.?

Generically the links are:
A 14 gage fusible link protects the 10 gage battery charging circuit.
A 16 gage link to protect 12 gage unfused wiring. Maybe near horn relay.
A 20 gage link to protect the 16 gage wiring maybe around the idiot light field wiring.
Two fusible links 20 gage protect the ammeter circuit.
