neg Battery Cable location

I am unsure where I should put the neg battery cable. I am using a customer alt bracket, aluminum heads and alum water pump. I am guessing it would go to the block, but was looking for suggestions as to where

Re: neg Battery Cable location

I have mine on the bottom alternator mounting bolt...and have all the ground stapes from the engine to body and chassis.

My Spelling is not incorrect...it is creative

Re: neg Battery Cable location

Hi Ken,

I always place my battery cable on the engine block, lower passenger side and X2 with
the ground straps.

Re: neg Battery Cable location

The starter is the main current load. As long as the ground cable is connected to the block such that the starter can pull a few hundred amps through it without a voltage drop you'll be fine. As for ground straps, those are primarily noise suppression devices although they also provide a return path for the oil pressure and temp sensors that are grounded to the block. The main body ground is a pig tail lead from the battery (-) to the right fender just below the hood channel.
