Did you pick up another block and use factory style wires on it?
Is it still burning the wires after changing the block and wires?
Also, what wires are popping on it

You mean fusible links are burning up? If yes  something is pulling to much power through it or you have a short somewhere. Yes people have used fuse boxes and wired things up. Highly recommend you know how to calculate voltage and amps properly to do it though. I had one melt on me about 2 years ego. All it was just bunch of badly corroded connections and grounds from car sitting over 10 years or more before l got it.

clean all terminals on block and the other plugs in fuse area with a small nettle file and use dielectric grease on all terminals to keep the connections clean............dirty terminals that cant pass the voltage will make heat in electric fuses............I just did both my cars last week............

While you're there at the relays and block , I'd go ahead and pull the relay panel off and clean and grease the ground behind it. While you're there go ahead and clean and grease all grounds around the battery. I've learned the hard way that those need to be good and shiny :D
