Black (Battery Ground)

Black (Battery Ground)

One of the most common wiring problems experienced is poor grounding. There should be no paint, anodising or other surface layer protection between the ground wire and engine block or chassis. Temporary wiring will almost certainly cause a problem, use a proper ground eyelet terminal and do not use loctite or similar locking agents as they may become insulators preventing good earth connection. Battery Ground (Black) should be connected directly to the Battery negative terminal.
