I can't think of a ground with a molded connector. This might be O2 sensor or something elseI took a closer look for my grounds today and noticed that there is a ground strap hanging down behind the head from the coil area that appears to be broken. So it is not hooked up. It appears that it would plug into a male prong or something because what is hanging down is a female socket with half a broken brass/copper looking prong in it... I am sick so didnt feel like digging into it too much today. Where is this ground supposed to go?
In the meantime I made a couple extra ground straps. One from one of the valve cover bolts to the frame, and another from one of the alternator bolts to the frame...
It is important to have a heavy gauge ground strap between the engine and body, but it doesn't necessarily have to be that one there. As long as you put one somewhere, I would think you will be fine.ya thats what it loos like. is that important? or will the one I made be sufficient to replace it?
its a fuckin ground wire. its not magic! The only thing thats important is that you use the same OR larger gauge wire. I would say connect it to the same location, but thats not a requirement, just for peace of mind. Just make sure its engine to chassis and the bolt/bolt head sizes are the same, size is important...also making sure there is no paint under the contact area is a good idea.ya thats what it loos like. is that important? or will the one I made be sufficient to replace it?
