How these are going to be positioned, - you can do it any you like. The barrels are going to face the engine compartment, 1/0 feeder. The threaded end pointing toward the inner fender wall. A 4awg (2gauge) cable with a pre-bent tin coated solid copper riing terminal will be added to the threaded end. Pre-bent so that the 2gauge runs right next to and in-line with the 1/0 cable. The the cap is installed to fasten that ring terminal to the battery clamp...A robust high out put solid copper conductor.

The other side of the same battery clamp will recieve another solid copper ring terminal. These ring terminals are 3/16 thick, - not messing around here. That ring terminal will be another 1/0 feeder to the battery post conductor.

That's just the positive side, - the negative will be set up the same. 2, 1/0 awg feeders and 1 2gauge per clamp. It the best design I could come up with that will look like a professional/factory install...No little fairy wires running everywhere lol.

Anyway, that's my plan. If you need solid power, this works. I'm using a 2/0 block because of it's circumference and projected max power output. I'll never need it all, - about 75% yield.

No problem bud. My stock terminal crapped out & broke recently. I've got a $5 special from AZ on it now rather than replacing the entire cable. Does the job ok. But if he falls through, I'm your guy.

Don't worry about PayPal yet wait until get them in my hands first.

Since you have duals, you have a crimper or are going to solder. I have a 16 Ton Hydro crimper on the way. I think that's big enough lol. I was going to solder mine up w/Kessler 60/40 tin or look into silver soldering. According to the Alternative Energy ***/Solar -mechanical compression done right is the best way..no burps in conductivity. The Crimper I ordered I believe is a 5 side compressor. So I could make them solid for yuh if you know what you want, just pay for what ever cable costs.
