I have an all original Blaupunkt 6V AM-FM Shortwave radio in my 356 B, but unfortunately I have mislaid the in-line/glass fuse. Could someone please advise me of the dimensions of the fuse - length, diameter and amps, and the supplier of the same?
Looking forward to your replies,
Many Thanks
Norman May

According to the Blaupunkt spec sheet I have for the Frankfurt transistor #3798, it lists two Buss fuses.
M2, rating 4A, #6MA4
M3, rating 2A, #6MA2

The diagram for the power pack only shows the M3.

I hope this helps.

Mike

Hi Mike,
Thanks for your reply regarding the fuses. I am finding it difficult to locate the fuses on this side of the pond, any thoughts on a supplier in the US that may be able to assist?
Kind regards
Norman May

Let me do a little digging, Norman. I'm sure they are still available from someone.

Two companies came up that carry a wide range of fuses: McMaster Carr and Grainger.

I would just go to my local autoparts store and buy a universal radio in line fuse holder. A quick install with a pair of wire cutters and a bit of tape and it will be just fine. Only you will know that it has a "brand X" fuse and holder.

Regards

Jim

Jim: Norman may be referring to the fuse located within the radio, not the in-line one.

Thanks to all who have replied so far, though I do appreciate Jim Breazeale's advice, I would like to persist in obtaining the correct fuse. The fuse is for the yellow lead from the radio to power source and I believe the fuse diameter is 4mm, and length is 20mm, not sure of the amperage. Many apologies Mike for not being more specific but I am pursuing your suggested suppliers, no luck so far.
Regards
Norman

I just use an 8 amp ceramic fuse in an original fuse holder.

Fry's Electronics has every fuse imaginable. In the UK that may be your old school hardware store perhaps. Or a place that sells computers or audio systems.

A picture of your holder would help. There is more than one type.

Norman, this fuse (diameter is 4mm, and length is 20mm) is in the powerpack of the radio.
