Good morning, I see a lot of posts about relocating the ground strap closer to the starter and have a few questions. I have a 51 TO30 all original 6 volt system. Does anyone have pictures of the relocation? Should the ground strap be mounted to the starter mounting bolt ? If so do I need a longer bolt? Is a 00 size the same as 2/0 as that's what I see listed on most sites. What size ring on the wire is needed if indeed I can use the starter mounting bolt? I see 2 different sizes available. Should I mount it to another location on the block instead of the starter mounting bolt? Thanks, John.

Something I've seen on a few restored vehicles is that folks will have a thick coat of paint on the mating surfaces of the starter and the block and the current isn't able to flow through the paint. I've cleaned the paint off to bare metal and it's fixed the problem. Just my 2 cents, probably worth a penny.

Thank you, I find all of your post so informative, enjoy reading them all. Should I ask for 2/0 ??
Use the same bolt that I removed??

Yes a 2/0 wire:

I Purchased a grade 8 longer Cap Screw, made sure I had the same amount threaded into the bell housing as the Original:

That's how I done it......each to their own ideas:

The info I gave the Auto parts shop was NOT at all what a Tradesman would normally do.

I Gave the length of the cable in inches, and the diameter the size of my RING FINGER.

Drilled the EYE to fit the CAP SCREW ....Starter turns over so fast it's incredible:
