Turbocharger Posted April 14, 2009 Share Posted April 14, 2009 Just thought I'd post up a semi-bodge from the weekend. My earth strap parted company and looks like it'd been getting a little hot at the gearbox end for some time previous. I trimmed it back but I don't have a crimp or tool so I made up this clamp: I trimmed 2" of insulation, split and plaited the copper strands and then pushed the bolts through the plait and clamped it securely between the plates. It's not ideal but it'll last a couple of weeks while I source a heavy-duty earth lead, rather than rushing out to buy a cheapo auto-accessory shop one made of string. I can get a ring-ring lead at the same time and loop straight to the starter motor body too. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
