Question on this lug?


Brew

Recommended Posts

I found this mess changing out my battery….

So what is supposed to be wired here? (White circle 2nd pic)I have a black wire & red wire on it. The black wire goes to positive post on battery. The red comes from wire bundle that comes out from in front of radiator. (White lines 1st pic) I am thinking the post is a ground that is wired wrong.

Which fuse?? The fusible link??

I guess so. It has run fine for 6 yrs with a heavy gauge wire running from that post to positive batt terminal . What & where is the fuseable link?

The fusible link comes with the cable. I'm not sure what gauge the link is. Maybe someone knows, I will see if I can figure out what gauge it is

Fusible links are usually 4 gauge sizes smaller than the main wire.

Ok, I got 12 gauge fuselink wire from auto parts store. This wire can self destruct. IT IS THE FUSE, so to speak.

this was unclear to me so I post that for anyone else seeking the information in the future.

i cut a piece about 9 inches long & crimped connectors onto both ends. One brass for the battery side and one standard for the threaded stud that is on core behind headlight.

I have started it several times, with lights on and without lights on. Drove it 40 miles or so and it works without any issues.
