How to terminate battery cables?

I have the DSE battery relocation kit and just installed the battery holder.

How do you put the brass ends on the cable(s)? Crimp? If so, do I need a die?

Thanks much.

Re: How to terminate battery cables?

I used Taylor Brass 2 Ga. battery eyelet terminals (Summit part number TAY-21409), they solved all of my problems. You can get a picture and price at summit.com.

Re: How to terminate battery cables?

U meant the type where the cable goes into a hole on the back?
There are 2 ways
1/tin the cable (solder) and the inside of the hole, slide the cable in and solder
2/Crinp...this can be done by hand, thu best with the correct crimper...these are expensive and used by electritrians...next time the electrian is clalled into your work place or head down to the local work shop and ask him to crimp it.

I Tin the cable/terminal, then crimp, then flow the solder in

Remember to put the heat shink tube on the cable before crimping

My Spelling is not incorrect...it is creative
