well i got it on first, then all the car did was click and wouldn't turn over. i cut some rubber back and cleaned up the conections with a wire brush now it starts. i checked it again and i think i over tightened it and damaged some of the threads on the new bolt so im going to get another one just in case. i don't have my subs yet so it'* not a big loss. i think i could put the ring on the bolt i have now it seems like it'* only about a 1/16 of an inch thick it can't hurt. where can i get the longer stock ones at in case? i don't quite trust those brass ones.

His rubber had problems too when it was full of crud.

You can just use a socket to remove the bolt... slide the o-ring on... and then tighten it back down... that is what I did. I can post a pic and socket size if you want...

I'm supprised that you are having difficulty with those replacement bolts. That'* specificly what they are made for. I would think that the threads in the battery would strip before the bolt cause lead is a very soft material. Softer than brass I'd hafta think.

I would stick with the stock connections. The brass ones are very sensitive if you over tighten em by a lil bit you will snap em. Best bet would to have a battery like BonneMeMN.

have you checked the firewall. on the series 1 cars like my 89 there is 2 positive cables one to the starter and one to a junction box on the firewall. i tapped into this box to wire up my amp. makes it very to do, especially when you are running 2 batteries 1 for the car and another in the truck for stereo system
