86 560sec Blower Fuse location?

I've surfed the forum but need help in locating the fuse for a 86 560sec Blower. Seen a pic of a 90 560sec, but my 86 doesn't show the same location. Any help would be appreciated. It's been cold here in Oklahoma and my kids want the blower fan to work to warm em up. Fortunately the heated seats still work.

Look in front of the fuse box against the false firewall. there should be a fuse block and cover about 3/4" wide and 2 1/2" long. It may be on the drivers side wheel well as well. I think they moved it to the false firewall area later in the proiduction(1988?) Pull the cover off and there is a strip fuse in there that is probably blown. They are 30 or 50 amp. to rig a fuse between the poles(screws go to a auto parts store and buy a spade fuse and holder with the wire pigtails and simply wire that in between the screws. that will work until you can get to a MN dealership fo the strip fuses. You might try your favorite Indy as well. I found a couple at a local Indy shop and didn't have to do a 56 mile RT to buy the fuses. Buy a couple or three and put them in the glove box for future use.

My Blower fuse is located on the top of the driver's fenderwell in my(are you ready for this) 1984 Euro 500SEC. I didn't think they were installed that early, but maybe the Euro's were different.

My fuse for the 1989 SEC is where Mike pictured it.

As to the AC working? I would think it would, but no blower. I don't know for sure. Someone else will have to expound upon that question.

WOW!... Isn't the internet amazing! Gr8 Job everyone for their contribution and helping me solve this puzzle. Once I check the various suggestions I'll get back with the one that fits the 1986 specific location.
The pic posted by mramay is the same I've seen for the 1990 sec, but unfortunately isn't the same for the 86. Uuugh.
Cascade, thanks for including the fuse diagram! My 86 still has this in the fuse box lid, but I certainly appreciate the scanned copy you attached. MUCH EZr to read for my 50+ year old eyes.
Thanks again.... 560xtc

What the (BLANK)?!?! I've checked (again) the above suggestions with no success.
I'm tempted (Just to prove myself) to post a pic of the '86 I'm dealing with of the similar location that mramay sent. Checked both sides of the breather, top of the driver's side wheel well, along both firewalls.... just can't seem to find the blower fuse.
Looked and checked ALL the fuses in the fuse box as well. MAJOR RATS, RATs,RatS!!!
I know for a fact the engine bay had been rewired due to a small electrical fire... I wonder if the Previous Owner (PO) had neglected to locate the blower fuse in the original location??? Again to ALL.... Thanks for your HELP! But I could still use anyone's instruction.
