Main panel fuse question

My home has a 125A main panel utilizing fuses. There are two pullouts with cartidge fuses. One of them is dedicated to the range (40A). The other (60A) controls everything else (i.e., all the branch circuits), as well as the central a/c (which also has its own 40A fused disconnect outside the house, right on the other side of the wall where the main panel is). My question is, should the fuses in the "main" 60A pullout be time delay or not? Or does it not matter? My guess is that they should be time delay since the starting load of the a/c passes through them, but I want to be sure. BTW, the fused disconnect for the a/c has, of course, time delay fuses.

Yes, with a central A.C. system, it's best that the Main-fuse be the time-delay type.

Good Luck & Enjoy the Experience!!!!!!!!!!!
