1. = 35
That is about the same as mine, 2 inches +-.
One more question. While building my Jeep, all the holes for mounting lights, electric items where drilled, then everything was painted. Wanting to protect all metal from rust, everything is sealed. I guess I am going to have grounding problems. Not wanting to expose bare metal, I guess I am going to have to run ground wire to everything.
A shakeproof washer on the connection should be sufficient. There should be a ground strap from the battery to the body, and from the frame to the engine.
Starter wiring. Need to know where which wire goes on which stud.
Red wire, that will go on the big stud
Purple wire, goes to the ignition switch
Green wire, goes to coil
Here is a picture with what is marked by the studs
i believe the s terminal goes to the start wire from switch the r terminal i think gives twelve volts when cranking to the coil.
Read on line, that the wire that is going to the coil, puts 12 volts to the coil when starting, bypassing the ballast resistor. If you have a HEI distributor, you do not need the coil wire from the starter
I drew this up for you (but I'm no Howard)...This is how my alternator is wired. I have HEI.
Thank you, Focker you are a gentlemen and scholar.
