thanks!

as to the ground strap, thats all there is yea... its 35mm2, the same as the + cable.. no reason to use any bigger ground cable! and why would you want a ground cable all the way to the engine? that wont have a lower resistance then using the entire chassie as gorund ;P this is how it is done in all cars with a rear mounted battery.. my daily driver is the same way and there is no problem crancking that big v12....

I'd like some advice on that topic from a more "neutral" source. I'm also planning on moving my battery to the rear.

Btw Andreas, your work is just plain fantastic!

Or another way to view that is because they sell wires they actually know what their talking about.

Maybe you don't listen to your doctors cause they like to keep you sick so they'll have more business?

some unbiased opinions:

I listen to my doctor cause we have universal healthcare over here.

I wasn't saying that the article is bull crap but they do have to sell more wires to stay is business.

I'll read the linked articles you posted thank you!

OK, now you're just bragging! As we in 'Mericuh have proven, universal healthcare won't work here cause we won't even try it

I think I get what you're saying about the rurrents and meing and Elektriker, but I can't be absolutely sure. I was just trying to point out to Andreas what might be a troubling issue so he could address it beforehand. I didn't think Poulrais would pull the thread so far off track.. My apologies!

I think, being an Elektriker myself, he should be all good with what he got done as the whole body IS a negative earth anyway, so there's no need for extra wires ;)

On what position did you weld that tooth? and how do you manage to keep it in sync when putting the belt on?

just welded it to the high point on the lobe, made a mark on the pully to line it up.. then sorta eyeballed the offset (its a big window) and set in the ecu!

the 242 is going in for a new paintjob soon (the one it has is, mediocre at best)

my original plan was just to have the guy do the same color as it has.. but then i started thinking... what about the original dark brown?? i do love that color, and it is the original one...

what do you guys think?
