Need help replacing fuse box/74 Dodge Sportsman Brougham

I'm trying to figure out how to replace the old fuse box because it is shot & rusty as he'll. Couldn't find another so I had to get a 6 fuse after market box. Old fuse box has 6 glass fuses but 12 wires/connectors on the back & the new one has only 6. So I take it that 2 things are being run through each fuse right? Can I splice them together into 1 connector each on the new box? Oh the new box is blade fuses instead if glass. I can be reached at (503)-330-3418. Any help would be great…See More

Very nice 74 Dodge, You made a very good choice Dodge made a better van in 74, than 79, I did'nt like the Dodge vans after the early 1978 model years. I am currently restoring a 1973 Dodge class C motorhome.
