Should be in the engine compartment fuse box...somewhere along the top of the firewall, IIRC.

Re: fusible link on an '81 Honda Prelude?

Well, I guess I ought to give an update:

We found the fusible link and the car was driven until 2012 when it developed a fuel issue. If you put a battery in the car it will start quickly and run for about twenty seconds. When it dies it won't start for at least twelve hours. After that, it will start quickly and run for about twenty seconds, repeat ad nauseam.

I towed the car to a mechanic's shop about thirty miles away where it has sat since 2012. He told me it was a single wire fix and then never touched it again. On the positive side, he is trailering it back to me so all I gotta do is make a space for it.

Look for me to be bugging you all in the tech section once the car arrives!
