Engine ground locations?
« on: March 18, 2019, 09:29:56 AM »
Ive been starting work on the eagle, and recently installed the Gronk, "Nuttered" it. But my starter drag has continued. Im convinced I just need to add more grounds, The only one I know is connected is the immediate one from the negative battery terminal to the Block. Where else should I look? And where can I add one?

And check the ground cables that are there for resistance.   Just because it looks OK doesn't mean its OK.

Thanks for the feedback. Probably won't get out to the eagle until this weekend.
