heavy cable is a must with trunk mount battery!
It promotes better starting with battery up front too.
fine stranded copper conductor & two layers of insulation
(5/8” O. D.)
fine stranded copper conductor makes this cable very flexible, and
electrically the fine stranding is more efficient than coarse stranding.
exclusive two-part insulation is best for automotive applications.
Gasoline, motor oil, transmission oils, brake fluids, grease and
solvents do not attack the insulation on this cable.
The insulation of ordinary welding cable often does not last long
in the automotive environment. And
the insulation of many welding cables is prone to “weather checking”
too (it dries up and cracks open). The
inner layer of insulation is a different material, designed to prevent the
copper conductor stranding within from cutting through.
And the inner layer is light in color to contrast with the
black–If abrasion damage rubs through the outer black, the problem will
be easy to spot before the cable becomes shorted to ground.

the cables to measured length and with the correct ends for the job.
Please specify Top Post POS or NEG, ours are dedicated for best
fit. And on ends for studs
and bolts we have 5/16” and 3/8” sizes.
*Our START’M UP solenoid has 5/16” studs, GM starters have
3/8” studs, most “mini-starters” have 5/16” studs, and most
chassis and engine ground bolts will be 3/8”.

of solid copper, and coated with solder to resist corrosion, these are
heavy-duty terminals. Industry
standard for Top Post battery terminals has the Positive slightly larger
than the Negative (to help distinguish polarity).
Our cable ends are dedicated for best fit. (It’s better than the
one-size-fits-all universal ends)
