Fuse Block Terminals

Hey All, Recently ran into some electrical problems on my street bob that ended up coming from corrosion in the fuse block. Unfortunately, some of the spade terminals in the block that the fuses plug into look pretty bad and IMO should be removed and replaced.

Has anyone attempted this before and if so where can you get the terminals.

Thanks

Difficult to replace the fuse block terminals, you have to get into the back of the fuse block ! Go to the hardware store and get a couple small Dremel wire brushes, they'll fit into the fuse block and clean the terminals good enough. After they're cleaned coat the terminals and fuses with dialectric grease and put everything back together.

Another thing you could try. Go to Walgreens and get a package of those cardboard finger nail file things the girls use. Trim the end to the same size as the fuse spade and then stick it in and out of the fuse block terminals a couple times. That should clean them well enough.
Otherwise if you're determined to replace the terminals they're sold singly or in packs of 5 at the H-D dealer parts counter. You'll have to cut a bunch of tie straps that secure the wire harness to get the block pulled out far enough to get at the backside. Plastic lock clips have to be removed to release the terminals from the block. Disconnect the battery first of course.
Just found them, they're called emery boards.

Thanks SCHMIDTYS those are good suggestions. Last night I was able to get the fuse block apart to get a better look at the situation and was able to clean the mini fuse terminals back and front with the dremel brushes and jewelers screwdrivers and they seemed OK. The 40 amp fuse was the worst and one of the the spades broke off inside the terminal block so ill definitely need to replace those two. Gonna grab some emery boards today as well. For some reason I wouldn't think the dealer would have the connectors but ill go there if I have to. I'm amazed this thing even ran like this. Got to address the reason why they got so wet in the first place. Thanks for the input.
