I attached the nagative of the battarhy to the brace and that seems to have enough ground. From the alternator the negative is attached to the block and the block is grounded to the bodt by the radiator.

Seems to work well this way for me.

where did you attached the negative battery cable(ground) I did it like in the instruction and my alternator wire still smoking.

Do I have to run to grounds from the battery or one from the block somewhere. Any ideas welcome car up in the air right now waiting.

I just moved my battery and replaced the block to battery cable with a 2 gauge copper sidepost to bolt cable. It's fatter than the 1 gauge battery to chassis cable in the trunk, but that's probably a good thing... The side post terminal works perfectly for the block side, it's a solid, wide, contact that fits the bolt and washer and looks fucking sick. I just filed down the fat side and stuck the bolt with washers through the recessed side. Bolt the other end to the existing chassis ground location in the engine compartment and clean all the metal with sand paper while your in there. Kragen sells these exide Nascar Select cables for like 5 bucks, they are decent. Hope that helps...

Thanks,

Elliot

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
