"D Slater"]Cable never left the inside of the battery box. Longer transmission cover top bolt and a sleeve like spacer was used in the hole inside the battery box for fastening the non terminal end of the positive cable.
I'm guessing the ground cable originally was a strap, correct?
This fellow doesn't want that, but then, it isn't visible so a round cable would work, providing the non terminal end is large enough. Thanks much for the input

Al, Yes I believe the original ground cable was a braided strap attached to the positive battery terminal. On my restored gas SMTA I have a braided cable attached to the positive battery terminal and to the top cover as noted by D. Slater inside the battery box. The problem being in doing that is the braided straps are obviously a ground cable and are currently sized to the smaller negative terminal on the battery so they don't fit down on the post very well without some additional work. My tractor has a 12 volt system using a Super MD 12 volt generator in place of the original 6 volt one used on the gasoline SMTA's, Hal.
