Good call, that's definitely a fan to cool the 12 gauge conductors off. With that, I'm sure they can handle 300 A.

Are you sure about that? It looks very old.

And they used a bushing so it's fine.

I'm of the same thoughts as you. The crud layer on the bottom of the disco says it's been there a while and the fan hanging on the side screams 1970s. Chances are the only thing his guy did was upgrade whatever that disco feeds and down sized the wires on the output side of the fuses.
