I'm a fan of functionality over how the previous owner had things. I 
think the best place for a ground strap is between one of the starter 
motor mounting bolts and the frame adjacent to that bolt. you want that 
starter motor to have the best electrical connections that it can have.

I have a 2 1/2 inch 3/8-24 bolt with two nuts, a lock washer and 2 star washers that I labeled "engine ground" on disassembly.  Now I can't figure out where it goes.  My photos show the ground attached to a timing chain cover bolt and the other end to the shock tower in an extra bolt hole where the cross tube attaches.  And that is where the old strap wants to be.  The hole in the shock tower is about an inch deep, so simple enough to secure the strap there.  Just don't know where the 2 1/2" bolt with 2 nuts goes.  Could be I mislabeled it.  Any enlightenment will be appreciated.
