That's right. I've actually wired the car from scratch according to the
Haynes wiring diagram. In the Haynes diagram, the fuse that blows is no. 8.
One side of it goes to terminal 30 on the hazard warning light switch, while
the other goes to terminal B+ on the voltage regulator, and thence to the
battery. It is an 8 amp fuse.

It's never really given any trouble up to now, and all I changed was the
routing of a couple of wires. Also, as I said, each time I changed the fuse,
everything seemed to work again for the rest of the day.
