    Battery cable routing

    Drivers side battery cables are a mess. Seems like some of the cables should go above the battery, but there are no clamps to hold them. Anyone have a pic of what they should look like?? 1969
    Thanks in advance

    Steve,

    This is probably not the angle you need, but this is how mine has always looked .... This shot taken in '08

    Hope this helps...

    Slip your cables behind the battery hold down strap, keeps them out of the way

    Steve, u should install the rubber insulation blocks on your positive cable ends of the batteries, available from Porsche. Pix shows one installed and one upside down so u can see the profile.

Size:  95.3 KBDavid- that was a great idea! Gled49, I will order those insulators—which reminded me of a stupid thing I did when I was only using one large battery. I will start a thread of stupid things, so others may not repeat mistakes!

    I did add a hose clamp for the top wires that uses a fender screw.

    cable routing

    The accessory wires route along the hood cable tube and are attached to it with a WHITE ty-wrap, the battery cables run along the trunk floor and bend up to the battery positive post.

    Ed,
    That looks great! I will have to work getting my cables too look like yours.
    I checked and Wire ties have been around since the 1950s. I don't know any place else they were used on my 1969.
