      I have a 74 Avanti. The cover is a flat piece of aluminum with a simple piece of paper glued to it that shows the fuses. Unfortunately (surprise!) the picture doesnít match whatís in the fuse box. Your fuse box looks like mine, and not like the diagram on the cover. Hereís what the diagram says:

      Left side from top:
      1. 20a HD light circuit breaker
      2. 5a W/S wiper circuit breaker (I have a fuse, as do you)

      4. 10a back-up, tcs
      5. 6a radio-tape
      6. 15a elect ant (donít have an elect ant, suspect the directionals are connected to this one)
      7. 15a directional (nothing is connected to this on mine)
      8. directional flasher
      9. same
      10. 10a clock, interlock mod, ign buzzer
