    I have collected sleeves, grommets, hole plugs/cap-plugs, harness loom, ty-raps, terminals, insulators, since 20YO maybe. Yes, out of hand these days but no problem having what I’ll probably never use. All started when I constructed P3 Orion aircraft sonobuoy cable harnesses/circuit boards. What have I done lol......

    Not up on what they are going for now but sound's like a good deal. I remember when they said they would not be making any more at one time. Knew that would not work. Have fun driving it buddy. :thumbsup2:

    I may be typing the obvious, but basically the basic MOPAR the charging system does not go through that engine to body bonding wire at the rear.
    That boding wire is is to ensure the things in the body like tail lights, voltage regulator, etc. have a good negative return path to the battery via the engine block then the battery negative cable.

    Off the top of my head, the charging circuit goes from the alternator output through the firewall bulkhead to the amp meter and back to another Packard connector at the firewall bulkhead to the positive terminal of the battery (via a common connection on the starter relay perhaps).
    The battery negative cable connects and completes the negative charging side via the engine block to the alternator frame.
    Sound right?
    SO, this may have been covered in the NEC discussion, but I thought I would try and make it clearer on the car topic.

    Just to say I had an older car and had problem's with the tail lights not working then would work. So ran a ground wire from the front to the back and attached to the tail light's that fixed my problem. :thumbsup2:
