Which positive battery cable is correct for a 70 GTO?
Hello all - this is my first time posting on this forum, so go easy on me! I am replacing both battery cables for my 70 GTO convertible (since both were "Kmart style" red and black cables when I bought it 10 years ago and I am trying to get the car back to stock appearance). My question is regarding the positive battery cable - the GTO assembly manual shows a single cable routed to the starter motor. However, when you go to OPGI and other resto parts suppliers, they offer both the single wire cable and a double wire cable with the extra wire coming from the terminal connection. (Pictures of the cables are attached to this post). I assume the single cable is correct, but is there any advantage to the two wire style? If so, where does the skinnier wire attach to - the alternator? I am also replacing the engine wiring harness too, so I'd like the solution to be compatible with it; I have a new stock type 61 amp alternator w/ external voltage regulator, but I'm not running any additional high current devices like electric fans since my cooling system has behaved flawlessly with the stock setup. Thanks for your help.
