Amen to that Dave......and the Lucas bad reputation is almost solely due to 
the car companies trying to use chassis grounds that were already painted.  Run 
your battery ground (wheather + or -) to your starter motor- use welding 
cable, put star washers under all your ground connections, make sure you have a 
good ground strap from your engine to the chassis and run extra ground wires to 
your'll curse Mr. Lucas no more!!
