Hey Rick, I'm not always an "original" type of guy, but, you gotta have the main ground wire from the battery attached to the block. Clean the area first, and use a star washer. On my '68, there is a 10 guage pigtail coming off the bat ground cable that goes to the radiator support. There were originally several small braided ground straps from the engine to the firewall and subframe, mostly for radio noise suppression. For the pos. side, see below, "Camaro wiring" from LDRyan.
