If you're still running glass tubes for fuses, check for voltage across them when you turn the key on. Those old connections to the brass holders and the holders get weak over time. The main should be hot without the key if I recall correctly. I also can't recall if the main is part of the fuse box or a separate fuse connection on this model.

Another piece of advice, if you're still running glass tubes, I'd recommend swapping the fuse box for the more modern blade type. Even a non-electrician can do this as long as you can use a crimper or soldering iron.
