Battery cable routing?
#1
Puzzle time!

Negative cable goes from battery, to the voltage regulator then to the engine... right?

Does the tab on the cable go on top or under the voltage regulator?
Does the tab go to the forward upper screw or the lower rearward screw on the voltage regulator?
Where does the other end of the cable connect to the engine?

Thanks for your time,
Peter

Rear lower bolt. My guess would be on top for best connection.

Excellent,
Pretty much need to hook up the battery cables and I should be able to use my car as a run stand that moves under it's own power…

Anybody have some detailed photos? I have searched a few eBay listings for good engine compartment photos and so far I have not found anything showing where the end of the cable goes on the engine.

Glad I could help. Don’t mind the road grime down there. I drive my car every chance I get. Smile
