-Battery cable

Can anyone tell me where the negative battery cable is supposed to attach at? Mine is attached to the a/c support bracket. It won't start sometimes and you just have to loosen it and wiggle it around. Getting kind of old!

I would clean a spot on the frame with sand paper to bare metal for a good connection then ground the batter to that spot and run a different ground for you engine to the frame

Re: -Battery cable

Leave it directly connected to the engine block to ensure a good ground for engine electronics, then run another ground to the frame.

I use bronze or brass internal star washers on each side of the wire end terminals to ensure a good ground.
The star washers bite into the metal on each side making really good contact.

I would also either clean or replace your positive cable. It looks in pretty bad shape. Also make sure you are making a good connection.
