Melted fuse box positive battery cable stud

How common is this?
Finishing up an electric primary fan install, was reinstalling under hood fuse block.
The thing fell apart in my hand, obviously melted pretty badly @ some point.
Luckily had a spare from the electric fan donor vehicle.



@ any rate fuse block and wiring completed, and tested working.

Check with Member "HamiltonChevy" to see if he has any more brass Post Kits available.

Thanks! So it is a normal failure, good to know.

Luckily the donor car I grabbed the fan and under hood fuse block from already had a brass post, so I'm good.

Talking

Now that I'm driving it after front end rebuild, the intermittent no starter engagement issue it had is gone.
Looks like the stud was the culprit. It used to occur couple times a day. Hasn't happened yet.

You are lucky it didn't catch fire. There are numerous posts here about the ABP, plus a factory TSB for it.
