  • Battery Cable Butt splice connector?

    Am I correct in that the gauge size is Uncategorized Groups and where is the best source for butt splice connectors?

      yeah, that “Uncategorized Groups” thing came up in a post I made yesterday. I edited it to what I intended but it’s strange to see it again…maybe it has something to do with a “#” sign. Mine was “#6” originally and it looks like baws is asking about a wire gauge number…

        Yes, that was what I typed in and saw when I typed it.

          Bruce, what does the end of the cable you are trying to lengthen look like? Picture?

            It's the stock, 45 degree angle fitting for the stock starter/solenoid connection. I'll see if I can post some pics for this whole "adventure in Lucas Land"

                Thanks Bruce! I did check them out, great source. I wound up ordering a couple of butt splice connectors from Remy Battery, Inc.
                When they arrive, I'll post a new thread with pics of the custom positive cable I am going to make up.

                    Nope, just going to crimp and heat shrink tub the joint.
                    There's no signs of solder anywhere my existing cable or the repros.

                      That could mean one of two things...either there are no soldered joints or they were really well done.

                          The crimper tool I got off Amazon looks like a heavy duty bolt cutter except the jaws have adjustable "teeth" for various connectors up to 8 gauge size.
                          I've tried it on a piece of scrap battery cable and that connector ain't comming off!
