Fuse box issues

I am haveing an issue where all of my fuses in my fuse box are loose. Some times I have to wiggle them around to get the curent flowing. Anyone know of a fix for this?

You can try and disassembling it and prying the contacts tighter, but with age they may not hold. Otherwise salvage yard or Ford for a replacement. There are other options but it is a huge job to rewire a new box, especially if you have never done one. I did one on my sons 77 CJ5 and I wouldn't even think about doing it to my truck,.

I drive on so many rough roads I replace shocks every two years and I've also had a few fusses work lose from time to time. Easy fix which I did was to place about a 1/2" thick piece of foam on top of the fuses then place the cover back on.

SCT, no studs...yet, Dual OEM intake air filter housings, Banks intercooler & intake elbow, Banks exhaust system, Windrunner ported intake manifold, Bullet Proof Diesel remote oil cooler & thermostat, AirDog2 (plus a couple spares), Power steering filter (Amsoil dual-bypass), MagTec deep ATF pan, Electric oil pre-lub pump, Dakota Digital gauges.

Man you aint kidding. I rewired my 68 F100 and it was a job. I am not even going to think about doing that on this truck. It's like the erminals dont grab the spades tight enough. I may try to use a pick to tighten them up a bit.

Not a permanent fix, but as a temporary solution until you can get it resolved, take the fuse out and bend the legs slightly in opposing directions, this will make the fuse act like a spring and push against the contact points better.

I've done this when having problems before and it will work just fine until you can get things resolved.
