Re: [DML] Capacitors, and "Ground Bus"

And Martin's ongoing wrongness continues....

Did you even bother to look at my ground bus schematic? It goes from original soldered junction to original soldered junction. All I've done is pull off the heat shrink and clamp the junction against a 4 gauge battery cable:

My ground bus augments the original seven ganged 12 gauge wires with 4 gauge battery cable because *THAT* is where the problem is. The reason it works so well is because the original seven ganged wires back to the bulkhead bolts are what are *SO* inadequate. There is a massive disparity between positive wire cross section and negative wire cross section to the rear bulkhead bolt (and an even bigger disparity in the single 6 gauge wire between the rear bulkhead bolt to the frame).  

Note: In addition to the above, my bus also:
- Adds another path to the battery itself
- Adds another engine block ground
- Supplements the frame as a ground path
