Question Can I use a common ring connector @ battery

I am in the process of cleaning up under the hood for show season. I was looking at my battery terminals and I have multiple ring connectors on each side.

Positive battery cable has these ring connectors:

1) battery tender
2) MSD box
3) electric fan lead (high amp)

Negative battery cable has these ring connectors:

1) battery tender
2) MSD box
3) Autometer electric gauge grounds for oil pressure and water temperature.

Would it be ok to connect all of the positive & negative feed wires to a common ring connector for a single, clean connection? This way I have only have 1 connector to each side of battery. I would obviously get a large gauge terminal and heat shrink after crimping.

Thanks,

Steve

You can do that as long as you make sure everything has a good connection.

I would solder the three leads together and then crimp them in an 8 gauge ring terminal as well as heat shrink the end of it.

Think it would be ok?

Yep, You got the right idea. It'll be fine as long as you have it all hooked up with good connection. You won't have a problem

Gotta make sure it's solid on both ground and power ..... Power is only as good as the ground it gets and vise versa

try something like this....
NOCO/Top post battery terminal end (TZ110CS) | Battery Terminal End and Adapter | AutoZone.com

you can hook whatever you want to this..then use a wire loom down the positive battery wire with all your other wires in it too make it look good.
