Re: IML: Really Dumb Thing To Forget - lesson: take better notes when pulling stuff apart.



Luke,
The ground cable goes on the front left (driver's side) intake manifold bolt. On my 64, I have an aftermarket cable and it also has that extra little pigtail on it.  Mine is swinging in the breeze, but I'm sure it should be attached somewhere.  My original cable did not have it.  Also, make sure there is a ground strap running from the back of the engine block to the firewall.

Guys this is a really dumb question to most of you I know and I'm fully expecting a resounding chorus of laughter but hey it's been five years and I'm finally getting my Black Betty back together, fired up and on the road again. Can anyone tell me where the original factory earth position is for the neg. cable? After all the shots I took do you think there's one of that cable? This was 8 years ago now mind you so cut me a little slack. Sure I could bolt it onto the radiator support any where but it just wouldn't be factory then would it? My money's on the upper power steering bolt but I need to be sure from someone who has an unmolested example before I throw caution to the wind. 
While we are on the subject I have a stray factory earth cable needing a home as well and I have no idea where the two points of contact are for that either. Only clue is that it's at the rear of the engine bay. 
 
Thanks team, beers on me if we ever meet in the flesh!
