1Earthing points.. Empty Earthing points.. on 10th July 2015, 5:02 pm

houghy_1


So I'm nearly there finishing off the last few bits n bobs .
A couple of questions I need to know though please.. 
How many earth's in the engine bay do I need? And where do they go to and from??
I've only got 2 big earth straps,1 that goes from a bracket connected to the back right of the engine to the front gearbox mount top plate and then there's a tiny blade off the gearbox to chassis leg with a ring on the end.
I think that's it for now.
So help me please :-D

Pretty sure thats what i have on mine mate ... tbh i dont think you can go to far wrong with as many earths as you want as its better to have more than less if you know what i mean ...

Your earth strap should go over to the engine. Its bolted to the thermostat housing.
The loom on the driverside also has an earth if I remember correctly. I will have to have a look tho as my memory is cack.

Thanks guys, 
Ok.My battery is in the boot btw. 
The earths I have are the 2 small onea on the plenum, a blade earth off the gearbox/transfer box joint that goes to the chassis leg as a small ring,I've put one big earth strap from the bracket on n/s of engine at the back right behind the dizzy that goes to the chassis leg also.
I have an earth I think that comes off from near  the alternator,no not the one that goes.on the stud on the alternator body bit a different one. Not sure how many I should do that's all.
