Fuse Rating Alternator Field & Regulator

I am connecting my NS2 regulator and 4023 alternator and want to use blade type fuses. Unfortunately, the blade type fuses do not appear to be available in the 8 amp rating. Will 7.5 amp fuses work, should they be fast or slow if the lower rating can be used?

7.5 slow blow should work. Remember, fuse are there to prevent wires from burning up. Place them close to the source of power.

No fuse is fast enough to protect a semiconductor.
