placement of in-line fuse?

I have a Honda GX620 mounted on a project here. It has the 20 amp system with a rectifier. Can I put a in-line fuse before the switch? The + lead is split at this point and one goes to the rectifier and other goes up to get power to the switch..Not sure where I should install the fuse..But should have one somewhere? P.S. I split the + wire down near battery. thanks

You could put a fuse anywhere but the question that matters is, what are you trying to protect?

Thanks Jim..

Thats a good point Jim..Just thought it should have one as some GX620's do. I don't have the original set-up though as I just got the motor without a ignition system. Maybe I don't even need one then..From the switch I got power going to the fuel selonoid on carb and power going to a remote electric motor but I added that.

The most common placement is on the power wire to the ignition .
Alternate fuse locations would be on the charge wire and the clutch wire.

Thanks Piston Slapper..

Hi- thanks, I might as well put it in the line before the ignition then I already got it and it is a easy access. Gene
