I have a 61 convertible and the fuse block has a broken tab that holds one of the fuses. I would like to replace the fuse block but all the ones I see for the 61 don't have the same number of spades to connect the wires. Mine has 6 spades on the end that would be toward the drivers side, three on one side and three on the other side, none of the replacements I see have six spades on that end. Can I double up wires on one that has four spades, two on each side? (admittedly I am more mechanical than electrical). Any suggestions will be appreciated.

Bill

OK guys and ladies I know someone must have run into this problem in the past. I really need to replace the fuse block in my 1961 Ghia Convertible. My problem is all the ones I find that say they are for the 61 show a picture that has a different configuration than presently in my car and I think it's the original. Attached is a picture of one of the ones I found online and I have marked it up to show what I am talking about. I am getting frustrated and I need help so please offer any suggestions.
