So where is the best place to get a new original type positive battery cable ? 65 Barracuda.
That one seems a rare bird for some reason. IIRC , it had a smaller gauge tap off the side for something? You see the negatives everywhere. let us know if you find a source thats under $100!
Just need the clamp? This is pretty trick. Mega Parts USA - Reproduction, NOS and Used Mopar Muscle Car Parts
$10!!! I cant remember what the OEM one looked like. https://www.rockauto.com/en/catalog...3cid+v8,1347667,electrical,battery+cable,2500
Here's 67-8. cable. Mega Parts USA - Reproduction, NOS and Used Mopar Muscle Car Parts
I could make something like that work and run a seperate wire from the starter back to the relay.
Does it need to look like the original 65 V-8 cable, or just start the car?
Option 2. The car is not at original car anyway so we can do it neatly and make it work
its very different: It has 4 taps and a splice. I think maybe the taps are not taps at all but just siamese cables under 1 sheath? Mine is so far gone from stock that its not applicable.
The extra lead from the factory cable fed power to the starter relay. I believe the factory "crank" wire ran back towards the battery and along the cable to the starter. It looks more like an entire harness from pictures I've seen than just a cable. We're making an aftermarket cable look factory-ish. Lol Hope this helps
Yes. This is a much simpler look at how it's hooked up. And pretty much what he is going to do. There was really nothing too special about the original that we can't do ourselves and make it look presentable.
