Wiring woes

I'm looking for options on wiring two new circuits to my fuse box. Can anyone tell me where I can find a PTO (Power Take Off) point?

I'd like to run 2 separate wires from there to the fuse box, for a stereo and dedicated fuel pump circuit.

Thanks in advance for your help.

One of the fuses has an open connector on the back. It sees "switched" power. You can tap into that for the radio; most people seem to do that.

I don't remember which fuse it is, but it should be obvious once you unbolt the fuse panel and lower it down to look at the top.

Carlos,

You already have a fused, dedicated fuel pump circuit. Fuse S13 protects the fuel pump circuit. If you are running carbs, you can wire a jumper from terminal IV of the 4 pin connector on the engine compartment relay board to ground. That's it, when you turn the key on, the pump runs.

S13 is on the relay board also

Thanks!!!

I'm blowing this idea off, now that i've confirmed my wiring woes are fixed... at least for now.

Thanks for all your help.
