As a correction to my previous post on the subject of fuse boxes; I pulled
my comments about the 49 not having headlight fuses in the box from memory
(a bad thing for me to do!). I went to check it this morning & there are
fuses there. Although I thought the member with the 3800 panel stated his
had a fuse for left & another for right, mine has one labeled "U. Beam" &
the other labeled "L. Beam".
