I was an electrician for 36 years. Now retired.
We used to say that electricians made what the engineers designed work ;^)
And yes, I have seen too many of those clamps with the bolt on strap fail.
They get corrosion under the strap (where you can't see!), they get loose.
On a few cars having battery trouble, I would just grab the + cable and pull it out of the clamp !!
Any car manufacturers or race teams use those?
I think the right cable was under $20 at Kragen.
Thanks guys-- its all good to have alternative options! I am not so concerned about the battery clamp side as I am the other end -- I think it terminates in a ring connector on the starter but I am not 100% sure -- and it has a second 14 gauge wire coming out of the battery clamp as well.
Let me look tonight / tomorrow and I will report back. Thanks again!
The starter end of the cable will have a ring end pressed on. No other wire on that end. There will be another, smaller wire with a ring end that goes on the same stud as the battery + cable. It goes to the fuse block.
A new cable assembly will have the ring on one end and the + post clamp on the other end.
Seeking a pre 1973 or European chrome bumper conversion kit for a rubber bumper Series II Spider.
Reproduction/Manufacture/OEM/Whatever OK, just looking for one available now and it good condition.
I am located in the Phoenix, AZ area
Mostly for the dash, but a few other parts that are unusual that someone may need. I am putting a list together of the individual parts and researching prices, so nows the best time to make an offer and get a good deal.
I've been offered a 76 very nice gtv, that belonged to a well known local...
I am after a Jaeger speedo ( speedometer ) as fitted to 105 GTV 2000 (1974).
I have attached a photo for reference. The speedo must have the inner organge markings for km/hr
Looking forward to hearing if anyone has one for sale.
