    alright fellas, I just picked up a 87 22r. The previous owner told me the truck had a bad igniter, i don't think that's the case anymore. The fuse box under the hood is what i think the culprit is. If anyone out there in mini land has a replacement please let me know!

    Im at a complete loss until i find this part :shrug:

    I'd assume a used OEM part is best option aside for an aftermarket fuse block. I know Blue Sea makes great electrical components, so I'd likely use one of theirs.

    The fuse box is not very complicated. Its just a bunch of wires running to relays and fuses. Try taking it apart. The bottom detaches and there you can see all the connectors.
    Possible corrosion since its really close to the battery?
    Water damage?
    Try cleaning the contacts

    Thanks for the heads up! I'll give that a try before I buy anything. The thing is one of the relays is pulled off the block and I don't know what it is for lol. It has zero markings. But I'll pull it apart and see what I can do
