Positive battery cable routing

I just picked up this battery cable clip and was wondering if there is a specific oil pan bolt that this goes on? It was apart when I got it so I had no idea which bolt held it. This is a 68' SS 350 4 speed convertible that I am working on. Thanks! Tom

Re: Positive battery cable routing

Mine is a 69 BBC car but I don't know why it would be different than yours. The clip is not on the engine but rather on the sub frame. This is the best shot I've got. Sorry. Note the upper control arm for reference.

Re: Positive battery cable routing

Thanks Fred, I think I have that clip on my frame also. I'm not with the car now but I'll check it tomorrow.

Re: Positive battery cable routing

I have a 67 small block, and there are 2 clips, one at the first 1/4 bolt and the second was at the third bolt back (just beyond the rearmost top motor mount bolt hole). The clip is formed that way to go over the lip on the pan rail. FWIW The second bolt back holds the powerglide cooler line stay bracket. Should you need a pic of mine during disassembly, you can email me. Hope this helps.

OK, that explains to me why mine is probably different. That part of my pan rail is dedicated to TH400 cooling pipes. Oh well.

My car is a 67, 350 and this pic is the way the clips where before the rebuild.

Here's a better shot of the clips you're talking about Fred. I think mine had the oil pan clips too, but I can't remember right now. It might be a big block/small block difference in routing. I think Roger gave the final answer for the OP.

Edit: Now that I think about it, one of those clips (lower one) is for the brake line I think...

Re: Positive battery cable routing

Dave, the brake lines are at the rear of the cross member. That clip is at the front.
Nice shot. What were you doing with your car? Looks like mine.

Yessir, you are correct. Fingers were faster than the brain when I typed that... I'm doing a lot of work to my car. Everything is in the link in my sig. Heading out the door in a few min to blast my subframe. Slow, but sure...
