negative battery cable

Can anyone tell me where their eagle negative battery cable attaches? My 1988 runs from the battery to AC bracket? Is that a good spot?

Same for mine.  The cable terminal goes under a bolt that goes through the A/C bracket and into the block.

I did one last week. DJM is right & he is saying make sure it is touching the engine block. The bracket simply holds it there to the block. You'll have to temporarily loosen up the belt.
