The British/ Lucas fuses are rated for the current that will cause them to blow immediately.
The USA / BUSS fuses are rated for the current they can carry continuously.
There's approximately a 2:1 ratio between them.

A UK/ Lucas 35 amp fuse is roughly equivalent to a 17 amp USA / Buss fuse.
A USA / Buss 30 amp fuse is roughly a 60 amp UK/ Lucas fuse.
A USA / Buss 35 amp fuse is about a UK M6 bolt... ;-)

50 amp . . . ~ 25 amp
35 amp . . . ~ 17 amp
