Mine is mounted in the passenger side of the trunk. The main cable runs from the solenoid on the passenger shock tower and goes through the firewall behind the passenger front kick panel then under the passenger door sillplate. Then it runs over the mounting bracket for the quarter window then over the rear wheel well. My box is mounted between the gas tank and the trunk drop off. Negative cable is grounded to the trunk floor.
That's a good article. Only thing you may want to consider is weather or not you want/need to run it to a disconnect switch rather than direct to the batt. Depending on what you are doing with the car (some racing events require it under certain conditions). If you need any cable let me know, I got plenty left!
i ran mine similar to how black 67 did his. however, mine is different. mine is still running thru the kickpanel and thru the wiring channel by the 1/4 window and over the 1/4 arch. i am relocating my starter solinoid to under the rh hood hinge. 3 reasons. 1 closer to the starter, 2 easier to connect the rear cable to. 3 easier to run wiring, power distribution. in the front i have my cable coming out the firewall just under the heatercore/evap core lines. in the rear, i have 3 holes in the rh drop off. the main power to switch , switch to battery and neg battery to frame. do not forget to run a heavy gauge frame to engine cable up front too!
I got the summit kit comes with cables, ends, vent, box, added a cable for the alt and hot wire for fuel pump The shut off completely kills the car and I believe you have to have it marked OFF somehow I think I have that covered. I made a guard out of 4 inch pvc heavy wall to keep any wrenches or screwdrivers off of the hot cutoff posts and the gas tank. I ran the cables along the frame rails and thru the crossmember with grommets to the engine compartment.
Good eye. It could be a little longer. There is a lot more inside the trans that thing is long, it will get me by until I find or have made a better one made. Suposedly a two door explorer aluminum will fit anyone know how long one of those is?
