Any body knows how many postive wires for accessories can be connected too the battery positive post. :shrug:

An infinite number as long as they don't touch the frame. It is a pain to service, however.

Get a bus bar and wire it to the positive post so you can tap off of it and only have one thing actually bolted onto the positive post.

Another option is the setup I have, 2 positive leads to a fuse block I modified. 4 fuses are always hot and the other 4 are connected through a relay so they only come on with the ignition. The fuse block is in the left passenger glove box.

True enough, but you will run out of threads on the bolt before long and need a new one (pun intended). This does not address that the practice is not a good idea, leaving too many wires to fry before getting to an inline fuse which is the least one should do to each line added.

There are many sources for extension of the fuse block and the positive terminal of the battery itself.

I'm sure that by the time you get back to your post, there will be suggestions from many people about the best way to do that and all will be valid alternatives.

As I reread his post, I wonder if he is trying to ask how much load can he run... i.e. how much "excess" alternator power is available...
