Yes, MELTED not just blown! Here's the story: I have a Ventrac 3000 with a Kawasaki FH601V 19HP with about 650 hours. When I bought the tractor about 4 years ago, it had "charging issues" but the seller thought they were fixed. A few times, I found the fuse between the starter and the voltage regulator had melted. This was inside the fuse, at the end, not in the middle where it should blow. I eventually changed to the new style prong type fuse and thought all was good! A few months ago, I added a volt meter and noticed the voltage never went higher than a little above 12 and sometimes barely above 10 volts. Finally, started checking things and found this. How does a fuse melt inside the fuse holder like this?
