85 3.2 Lost Power Cable from Battery to Starter
Hi Everyone.

Well, lost maybe too strong a word so misplaced might be better. I just got through my rebuild, lifted in the engine/trans, bought the hi-torque starter from Wayne and I'm darned if I can find the power cable that comes directly from the battery to the starter. The red is there from the alternator and the yellow but no high-current cable. I'm thinking it may have got caught up when lifting the engine.

Does anyone know how and where this exits a cable bundle and comes out near the starter? I'm bewildered:confused:

I am thinking that you will find it within a small bundle of wires coming over the back of the engine originating from the 14 pin connector.

It runs alongside the bundle from near the torsion bar. There should be one of those sheet meta; wire holders on the firewall holding it.

It is black, not red like most would think.
Can easily be mistaken for a ground cable....

Black power cable from battery......
Look at the right rear firewall behind the torsion tube. There is a rubber grommet on the firewall with the black cable for the starter.
