Where to run extra grounds?

Recommended Posts

Where should I run extra grounds on my 1987 GL-10 turbo sedan FT4WD? Should I go to the engine block or the chassis? Also, would it be better to get another ground wire entirely for the negative cable, or is there a secure way of attaching extra grounds with the factory cable?

 

Thanks,

Tom

I'm currently sifting through my harness removing stuff I no longer want. I'm impressed by how many times they ground the harness to the chassis. Grounds connect with other grounds and they all head for the chassis!

 

I think you'd be ok grounding to the chassis like the factory does. I also think you'd be ok connecting to any factory ground wire as they all ground to the chassis.

 

For what it's worth.

I have extra grounds running to the engine and the chassis.. It was very helpful in keeping my digidash under control .. this is on my 87 GL-10 Turbo

yah, not just more, but make the stock ones bigger, like the one from the battery to the body. i have 4 big ones from the engine to the body, and one 0 guage one from the block to the battery.
