      I'm not sure. I know its phillips drive, 1/4-20 maybe? After a bracket that bolts to the dash itself? Again I'm just not sure.
      The sad part is there are only a handful of 20 amp fuses in it. The dang reverse lamps didn't get fused until 1968. Owners would back into a tricycle and shut down the entire car. Good luck with it.

        the bracket that Redfish refers to is spot welded/welded to the dash and searching my memory i believe he’s correct it’s 1/4-20, could be 1/4-24 maybe

          are you saying you can't get the fuse block on the bracket or can't get the screw through the bracket into the fuse block?

              It’s unique. Use a magnet and shove it around.

                In my 1965 Dart, a flathead Phillips screw goes upward thru a hole in the bottom edge of the dash, into a tapped hole at the edge of the fuse block. The fuses face down when installed. There is no bracket. Some fuse boxes in other models or years had a captive bolt in the fuse box going downward. They can fit in an A.

                  My 66 Barracuda fuse box attaches with one Phillips screw into the bracket. Never noticed how the bracket attaches.

                  BUT it is a BIOTCH getting the fuse box lined up on the bracket.
