    Good article. Read it and believe it. NEVER substitute your Lucas fuses with an American Buss fuse. You will be asking for trouble.

    Buy'em by the dozen, cheap enough. I usually go with TRF but there are other vendors.

    This subject ranks right up there with clutches, dim dash lights and carb oil questions for multiple postings. That's not a knock, just that it's a popular question that comes up quite frequently and falls under my "Better to ask than screw up" category. That's why I bookmarked it.

    So you came to the right place. Here's one of our previous threads:

    This does come frequently -- it sure confused me when I got my first LBC!

    I would like to point out (as a side note) that the article on my site was written by Randall Young (from the Triumphs mailing list), and published on my site with his permission. I found it to be the clearest writing I had found at that time that explained the issues.
