Battery cable clips. Help / pics required.

Post by ollyw » Fri Feb 15, 2019 9:31 pm

Hi

I want to try and tidy up the main positive wire on my 2.8 where it crosses the engine crossmember from the battery to the starter motor.

Originally it would have been held on with clips but when I was starting to restore her these were missing so I held the wire up by cable ties which looks a bit naff and not that tidy really.

Does anyone know if these are the right clips? They are for the speedo cable but if memory serves correctly they have other uses.

Wondered if anyone who has their 2.8 up on stands currently could help me out here. A photo would be really good if they aren’t the right ones.

Thanks.

If I remember correctly the clip is solid around the wire hole and splits where it goes through the crossmember. I think the ones you've found would not hold the wire/cable securely.
These might work https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/50-Pcs-Black ... Sw1XFbwBE3
