   Aw, ida no, when you get right down to it the fuse block is a 
junction block with some fuses in it.  Almost all circuits are affected 
by it.  The problem I had with the horns on my '69 B finally turned out 
to be tarnished connections at the fuse box.  I can usually affect a 
quick fix on the road by spinning the top fuse in place, do a more 
thorough cleaning after I get home.  The doggoned old car has its own 
personality. ;^)
