Hippie, you need a BLADE type fuse holder with a 30 amp blade type fuse.. Use a sealed fuse holder if possible (has a snap on rubber cover)..You would like to use a fuse holder with at least 14 gaugepigtails & preferably 12 gauge pig tails..If you do a search for blade fuse then define the search to Twisty I have posted some pictures of what's needed & how to install in past posts..

Most of the better auto parts stores have those sealed blade type fuse holders as they are replacement forsome of the older GM cars & trucks..

"If there is any doubt about the condition of the red wire connector or burnt terminals at that starter relay you need to make a repair there... The best way to do that is to: cut off both large red wires just above the relay connector,, then solder the two red wires together along with one pigtail of a 30 amp sealedblade type automotive fuse holder (cover the solder joint with heat shrink tubing),, then solder a ring terminal to the other pigtail of that 30 any fuse holder & fasten that ring directly under the positive battery post screw.. That completely eliminates the relay mounted 30 amp original fuse & also eliminates any resistance down in that starter relay connection,, then put some silicone sealer in the remnants of the relay connector (where you cut the wires off) to keep any water out.. (you will no further trouble in that area after the the repair)"..
