Small blade type fuses
 
as used on Evinrudes.

My Motor wouldn't start today (first start since the coolent hose blew off a few weeks ago), I thought "Crap"! Anyway I started with the simple things first and it would appear that some corrosion has set in on the start assist circuit fuse making it blow and preventing the outboard from cranking over (at least that's what I hope it is).

There were some spare fuses under the lid of the fuse box, but only 10 amp ones (I need 20 amp ones). I've never come across such small fuses before. Which brings me on to my question. Have these a specific name or type number so that I can search for some and buy over the tinternet?

Andy, dunno exactly what size you need but small blade fuses are common, yel get a bag full on eBay for very little.

Yep sounds like Mini Blade fuses, you can get these in Halfords (if you can bring yourself to go in ;) )

Auto parts stores should have them; they're pretty common on cars nowadays.

Thanks guys, I've just ordered some from Ebay, so lets just hope it just the fuse that's gone and something not more serious. I'll try them when I return from France next weekend.
