Can't see it very well but the original Datsun battery ground wire has several wires.

This is Rallye's photo.

It’s hard to see from the photo, but the ground wire (10ga) came off the frame about 10” (not shown), poorly soldered to another 10ga and 18ga wires. They are about 6” long, then reconnect to each other (ground loops add hp I hear), then separate again for about 18” to another set of crummy solder jobs.

Well, at least they didn't end up in a container of dirt for "grounding" :shock: :roll: :shock: :roll:
