Well, we asked, and we got it!

Gary is doing another GP on his infmaous battery cables.

$55.00 for side post applications and $65.00 for top post applications. These are the best battery cables you can possibly buy.

Order directly from the website: Battery Cables

Hey guys.

I just bought three of Gary's products: Meziere Harness, Headlight Harness, and Battery Cables.

The difference in quality is amazing.

You will be glad you bought these cables


The stock wiring is a joke.

I considered ordering the top post and getting a dual terminal battery. Keep the car connections on the top and amps, etc on the side.

I think the only difference in the cables is the ends, and the top mount has a heaveier cable to the alternator for the 200 amp alternators.

All in all I decided to keep it stock and stick with the side posts. I can always mount my amps and stuff to the top posts down the road.

Can we get some confirmation from Mr. Clark on this GP and how many people are needed?

Also I have paypal on standby for a set of battery cables for a 96 9c1 w/ the junction box.

Question as to how to order correctly:

I plan on upgrading to a (2) Optima battery setup and a higher amp alternator when I re-do my stereo. Wondering if that info is enough to convey to Gary when ordering his lovely cables. :confused:

No minimum, the deals already going.. He changed the prices on the website for us.

Side post $55.00 (Was $65.00)
Top post $65.00 (Was 75.00)

Shipping not included. The shipping is reasonable though. All that copper isn't light..

Strike while the iron is hot ! and there's money in the bank account.

The timing of this 'special' is pretty good. I just put a brake controller (for trailers w/electric brakes) in my RM (Tekonsha Envoy works fantastic (inertial type))... and needed a good 20A supply for it and a good 30A supply for 'aux power' to trailer. I sourced both of these on the 'big' post at the 'underhood electrical center'.

And of course the factory post is a little melted/questionable looking. I have a new 'improved' brass post but couln't figure out how to get the old one off quickly... so just cleaned everything up (steel wool) and put it all back together... thinking I would get the improved cables and replace the post then.

So, the new cables have "and 2 gauge copper cable for the alternator and fusebox". What is my factory cable to the fusebox ('underhood electrical center')? Is it 4 gauge (it does look fairly small and did concern me about trying to tap another 50A (20 + 30) from it (especially when it already has melted plastic around the post). Car has factory towing package with bigger alternator; not sure on alternator output... Is this the 200A alternator??

Would I just be best to do the top post type with the 1/0 gauge alternator cable? I am thinking the cable to the 'underhood electrical center' on the top post type is still the 2 gauge (per the web site not indicating otherwise).

Hope my questions can be followed... any suggestions/experience will be appreciated. Also, any experience how to remove the old post (without ripping the 'underhood electrical center' apart) would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Kevin.

You can order now through sunday at the special prices...($10.00 off reg prices)..plus frieght..

The stock alternator is a 140amp unit...

If you are using a optima battery it makes it nice to have the battery cables on top and all your stereo and acc on the side post. (thats how I have mine)

The side post set is fine for anyone using the stock alternator.

If you are looking to do a custom setup. please e-mail me.. I.E. dual batteries ect..

Here is a break down on the cables:

Sidepost.
1/0 gauge to the starter
2 gauge to the alt
2 gauge to the fuse box.

1/0 gauge ground to the engine
2 gauge ground to the body

Toppost.
1/0 gauge to the starter
1/0 gauge to the alt
2 gauge to the fuse box

1/0 gauge ground to the engine
1/0 gauge to the body

The factory cables are all 4 gauge...

Gary any idea(over estimate) on the cost of shiping to the east coast(02905), or Should I just add about $10 for S&H?

thanks

Gary,

Thanks for the detailed response on your cables. I will be ordering at least one set (possibly two; one for each of my two '94 LT1 Wagons). I just need to decide if I want the top post or side post type. Do you know which alternator came with factory towing package; 200A or 140A? My '94 4300 V-8 Sedan has a much smaller alternator than the Wagons have; is this likely smaller than 140A or is 140A the smallest they did on Caprices in '94?... If so, then the Wagons must have the 200A.

My understanding is that I can do a Paypal 'echeck' on this up through Sunday (until 11:59 PM Sunday) and still get the reduced price. Is this correct?

Thanks,
Kevin.

Some Caprices had a 105amp alternator.

Both your LT1 cars should have a 140 amp alternator. GM never installed a 200amp.
And yes on the ending time on the GP...
