Pictures of Fuse box / area behind driver / engine bay

Hi, my car (1028) has a number of mods over the years as a race car which I'm trying to rectify / put back. Could someone with an original car please post some pictures of the fuse box / area directly behind driver (LHD) and also side pictures of the engine bay area so I can see where mine differs?

Thanks guys

No replies, and probably worth me explaining what I'm looking for. I currently have fuses and relays located by the passenger footwell/ side panel as well as where the fuel tank should be! (mine is a fuel cell at front but I need to move that). From what I've seen there are different variations car to car (when have we heard that before!!) So what I'd like to know is :

a) where should the fuses be located and the relays?

b) if they are located in the storage behind driver (LHD) are they beneath the carpet or above? Or is there a panel denoting the fuses in Italian above carpet and actual fuses below?

Hopefully the pictures show my dilemma!!

As ever thanks for any help

Cheers

Punkdog, Robbie, This thread is about Mangusta not Pantera.
On the Mangusta the fuse panel is behind the firewall behind the driver's seat.

Yes the cover is similar to period Maserati cover.

I've been addressing electrical issues recently and thought these two pics may help. First is a rear view of a fuse block & relays "mock-up". The harness is from 1056 and from close comparison I know relays on 1010 were wired identically. Presumably your car would be the same. Note the block is from a Pantera so the connections don't exactly match an OEM Mangusta block (that's why the red and pink feed wires that go to Fuses 6 & 9 - counting right to left - are not actually connected to anything, just dangling near where they should connect).

Not sure how early cars were set up but for c. 1970 cars - (as far as I can tell!) - these relays served to power loads on Fuses 10 & 11. Additional relays for the lights and emergency flasher functions were under the dash beside the horn relay.

One more... here is the mounting area for the block and relays. The insulation is indented where the relays mount (the three nails show were mounting screw holes are). The shared middle screw grounds both relays through the short white/black striped jumper. This ground is where bad connections developed over time and helped destroy a lot of the OEM SPST Carello relays:~(

My fuses ahd two relays are located under the carpet on the rear firewall just below the bottom of the rear glass in the luggage compartment. The fuse box is small, I think like one in the Ghibli. There are a couple of relays under the IP on the drivers side. Fuses are labeled on the outside of the cover in Italian.
Thanks everyone for the input that's helped a lot, especially the photos. It seems from the fuse locations I have that the loom has been chopped up. All the 'new' fuses are blade type but none are in the place where they should be.

Another item son the parts list...

cheers
one more pic showing the white insulator behind...
Denis, btw, no, I never noticed the Maseratis in the background !
And Nate, you probably do realize that the picture you provided here is history's best documentation of the fuse box relays... Smiler


I'd love to find originals for the vinyl jackets on the crimp connectors (the vinyl wire end caps marked Italy...!). Somewhere, there is a dusty box full of these waiting to be found...Lee

Lee, in your photo #1 above, note the pointed-end glass Busse fuses in the fuse holder. I've been telling people for years that Busse DID make them in many sizes for Euro fuse holders and they solve the corrosion problem that makes circuits quit. Sadly, they went away when Busse was sold, but occasionally E-Bay has a few.
while we are on the subject of fuses, unicorn picture of the inside of Maserati cover, should not be that different since locations are the same except for 'Pompe Benzina' (if anyone caught that in previous post)
