Battery Cable Replacement Options

Postby 510wizard » 23 Aug 2015 08:14

Looking for input on negative battery cable replacement. My cable end has seen better days after 42 years. Part# is 24080-N2200 (superseded), some sites show NLA, others show available but at $70 (holy shit must have gold plated ends). Want high quality, stock looking, not the typical two bolts clampdown type. Has to have the additional body ground terminal. Maybe some other later model Datsun/Nissan models might have something that might work. Did some searches, but have come up empty handed.

Well, ended up making my own. Did both negative and positive battery leads, added a little length to both. Used "Fusion" brand solder-on terminals and larger wire with triple thickness heat shrink. Ordered the correct right angle end for both positive and negative. I think that they came out great!

Maybe a trip to a wrecking yard could get you a cover for the positive terminal? It could prevent a wrench from being welded to your hold down.

Already have the cover on the positive terminal, although a new one would be nice.
