part # TM-2   $ 46.00

#TM-2 comes with everything in the #TM-1 listed above, except for the 22 ft. of yellow Tuff-Wire, which is not used with most electronic ignition systems.  (The yellow wire circuit was used to by-pass the ballast resistor during engine starting, with the old points and condenser distributor systems.)

The starter motor cable is the only electrical circuit that cannot be protected by a fuse
, circuit breaker, Fusible Link, or other short circuit protection.  (Because starters can draw all the current that a battery can put out, so the battery cannot put out enough power to “trip” a protective device with high enough capacity for starter motors.  All other circuits can be protected, and Fusible Link wires are best for the heavy-duty circuits.)

With our START’M UP system, the cable between the START’M UP solenoid and the starter is electrically “dead,” except for during engine cranking.

It makes good sense to put the START’M UP solenoid next to the battery (in the rear)–to avoid routing a “full-time battery live” cable all the way forward to the starter.  (If a “live” starter cable ever became shorted, a fire or battery explosion would be likely.)

Our Trunk Mount battery helper kit provides convenient battery positive power distribution up front.  The rugged 8 ga. Red Tuff-Wire is short circuit protected by the 12 ga. Fusible Link wire.  And our Blue Tuff-Wire extends the “START” wire to the START’M UP solenoid.

Easy hook-up for a remote starter button is also provided.(used with engine service work)

Electrical system performance is great with this system–it puts down a very good “power distribution platform.”  It works well with powerful alternators, and it can handle many high-powered accessories too.  The alternator is the source of power to run the electrical system.  Alternator power will be routed directly to the terminal block through a short length of our 8 gauge Tuff-Wire.  The terminal block will distribute full power to the dash area and to the accessories.  (The firewall is a practical place to mount the terminal block.)  The battery will be charged through the Red 8 gauge Tuff-Wire, which is protected by a fusible link at the rear.

The 1/0 cable routed forward to the STARTER is not “live,” except for during cranking.  (No fire hazard as with other systems that have a “live” positive battery cable forward.)

The battery ground (NEG) is connected to the car body at the rear.  And up front, another short length 1/0 cable connects from body to the engine.  This system uses the car body for the long intermediate length of the NEG side of the system all the way to the engine.  (It’s actually more efficient than routing a heavy gauge cable all the way forward to the engine.)  And this system insures that the car body is well grounded–which is very important.  Lights, fans, gauges, and many electrical system parts are connected to ground at the body metal.  The accessory systems work very well with this system.

We also have a special system for NHRA Drag Racing  & Main Disconnect Switch at   the rear with Alternator.
