>John, sounds like you're a purist like me! The correct original location for this ground strap is across the front engine mount rubber. It literally attaches to the stud of the mount on the engine side, and >the bolt of the same mount on the frame side. The idea is that, since this is a pivot point it is the location of least movement, in contrast with a cable that runs from the frame to another location on the >engine that moves side to side. You want to minimize the amount of movement this critical connection makes to discourage the Prince of Darkness from visiting! 

Guess I misread the post.  I thought the thread was about grounding the battery.  Apologies.
