Default HUDY truer fuses??

Does anyone know where they sell the 30A fuses for a Hudy truer? The biggest ones Radio Shack sells are 7A. They're the small electronics fuses like in the back of home stereo receivers. They are not sold at auto stores.

I'm not sure where you can buy them locally, but it seems like HUDY offers them:

102266 PRIMARY FUSE 30A (3) $4.00

There are other fuses on our price list, but this is the only 30A one.

Any auto parts store. Auto zone, Pep Boys, for example....

Like I said, these are NOT auto fuses. You must not own a truer or you would know? These are very hard to find 30A electronic fuses. I will try Nexus then.

I've been using a Full Automatic Truer By Hudy almost 11 years now. Only replace the fuses last year, 20 & 30 amp fuses. Found them at Local auto parts store. 20 & 30 amp fuses are used in auto on electric Cooling fan or Fuel injection. Some diesels uses 50amp fuses on glow plugs. They maybe a different color but they work.

Ditto. I blew a fuse a while back and went to Autozone. Worked fine.

I guess I should have said this first... BOTH O'Reillys and Autozone do not sell those small glass fuses. They both will tell you those are electronics fuses, go to Radio Shack. So I go to Radio Shack, then they will tell you there that the biggest fuse they sell like that is 7A, and that theres not even a 30A fuse that size made(even though I have one in my hand). Maybe a long time ago they sold these at auto parts stores, but they absolutely do not anymore. These fuses are half as small as the smallest auto fuse.

Nevermind. Yall dont get it. These are not off the shelf go to your local whatever store and buy. They are a very specific size and voltage. They DONT sell 30A 250V small glass fuses at Target or Walgreen's.
