My 640 has a blue wire from negative battery post to a bolt on the hydraulic pump. Obviously this is not correct. Can someone tell me where the original 11 inch braided ground strap is supposed to be bolted?

I agree with old, battery bolt box on the steering column.

If I remember right it would have been the bolt that holds the battery box on

That's correct, but it is a poor location from a functionality standpoint. Too many joints between parts for a good electrical ground path to the starter. I like my grounds right at a starter mount bolt.

I agree with you and when I can that is right where I ground one since the closer you get tot the starter the better it is grounded

If it'll function where it was supposed to go originally, that's where I'm going to go. Right now it has a 2ft long autoparts store cable in BLUE snaking around from ground and eventually ending up on a bolt at the hydraulic pump. I've ordered the original 11 inch bare braided cable and will find out just how much corrosion there is between all of the components. lol.

Today's Featured Article - The Nuts and Bolts of Fasteners - Part 2 - by Curtis Von Fange. In our previous article we discussed capscrews, bolts, and nuts along with their relative hardness and thread sizes. In this segment we will finish up on our fasteners and then work with ways to keep them from loosening up in the field. Capscrews, bolts and nuts are not the only means of holding two parts together. When dealing with thinner metals like sheet tin, a long bolt and ... [Read Article]
