What size?
If I'm running a ground strap from the engine to the frame, does it need to be substantial like 0/1? I know I've heard that running from a bell housing bolt to the frame is good. Ring in here guys! Thanks!

  • I always run a ground black 10 gauge wire from the back of the alternator to the battery negative side ! And I run a 10 gauge black wire from the battery negative side back up under the dash to a grounding bolt that I put in somewhere to run all my grounds to ,as not relying on the metal of the vehicle for grounding ! My ground wire from the battery always goes to the starter bolts even if it's mounted in the trunk !

  • I put a Ron Francis complete grounding system in my car 5 years ago. No electrical problems what so ever since.
    Belhousing to frame???? Not if it is aluminum... I run my ground for my engine from the starter motor to my ground system post and the body to that same post, which goes all the way back to my battery in the trunk.

  • If you have a chance get yourself a catalog from Ron Francis. There is a lot of useful info in the back all about how to ground your vehicle and troubleshooting electrical problems. It's helped me narrow down several electrical problems on my car. Call them they will send you one free.

  • Since it's a bare solid copper wire (no jacket on it), you can lace it through the frame holes, or attach it, whichever works best for you.
