There has to be a short in that circuit. Take a close look at the wiring and connector pins to see if anything is rubbed through and shorting to ground. Try doing a wiggle test on the wiring harness to see if you can cause the fuse to blow locating the short in the harness. check with the customer to see if they have the service book with schematics. If not there is a CD version on E bay for 72. Here is the linkService book

it is the 10 amp starter relay fuse but have noticrd that when it blows I loose power to the fuel shutoff do you know what else is on this circuit thanks
Expert:  Dan replied 1 year ago.
Hi William. Thanks for the update. It is very possible the shut off solenoid is shorted. Disconnect it and then turn the key on and see if the fuse still blows. If not replace the shorted fuel shutoff solenoid. Let me know. Also if you put a circuit breaker in place of the fuse with the same amperage you will save on fuses while testing.

check for any bare or shorted wiring that might be shorting to ground if the fuse still blows with the shutoff disconnected. Let me know.
