Engine earth strap

Anyone else's earth strap fell off?

Bunny's Grandad's X-reg JTD's (still with me on this?) earth strap fell off the other day after it had corroded through.. It didn't just snap off as the exposed end of the cable was all dull. Wondered of this was a one-off?

Re: Engine earth strap

I changed the gearbox on my hgt last year and the earth strap to it was badly corroded, I put it down to disimilar metals reacting over time + the current flowing through it would just accelerate it.

Re: Engine earth strap

no prob with mk1's !!!!! the way the strap bolts to the g'box is a bit wnk, took me ages to grind down a spanner so Icould get it off (two flanged bolts locking it down).

but nope, no corrosion or damage to it!!!!!

furthr evidence mk2's are rubbish
