Found it, same place as Rog found his. But having cut the cable tie attaching it to the other +ve cables, their is still very little slack to allow access to the fuse.
Cleaned it up with some ACF 50 & put a cable tie around it to hold it together & returned it to it’s original position with a new cable tie. (Stops it contacting the frame)

I'm reasonably relaxed about this Tom. My Roadster has the main bank of fuses on the bulkhead. Recently I pulled them (eight) and just polished the contacts, which were slightly tarnished.

The bank of twenty fuses under the dash is hard to get at so I only go there when I have to, such as when the horns stopped working.

The single main fuse in the rear cavity I would only check if I was in there.


Thanks Dave. I just realised I hadn't acknowledged your response so apologies for my bad manners. I've realised that this is probably also a feature of my other cars so the only issue is that the fuse may be less protected in the Morgan due to it's traditional construction. I would worry about completely covering it in any way that might trap condensation, so I think the preventative measures are to ensure it is reasonably shielded from dirt and water and then inspect it once or twice a year. Interesting though that protecting the car's electrical circuit might put the occupants at risk if the fuse pops at the wrong time and place!

For remote boat (models) we insert the receiver in a small balloon (like used for birthday by exemple) in order to avoid water inflow.
