Found the problem. Is this OK???

Well,

So, I used an in line fuse connector (with the normal blade type fuses) and bypassed the oem ceramic fuse and added a 30amp (just to see) and both fuel pumps started right up and the car runs great.

Questions:
1) Is this OK?
2) Should I put a smaller amp fuse in the connector?
3) Why would it not work with the oem fuse anymore?
4) Could the 21 year old wires be corroding a little and require more current to travel through them to work?
5) Lastly, what amp fuse (10, 15, 30) is standard and should I just add a larger amperage?

Any help would be appreciated. If you need a photo for better description, please let me know and I will snap one.

Thanks,
Bryan
