    I'm not understanding your question... If no fuse is there for the electricity to run through, it just runs straight through the wire... Am I missing something here?

    Oh wait a minute, I think I get what you are saying. See, you aren't understanding the concept of fuses. Electricity DOES run through the fuse in the fuse holder, but if too much goes through, then it pops the metal piece in there, so no more electricity can run through the line. Get it?

    Get yourself some crimpable ring terminals and go at it. Add the rings to the stock battery terminal.

    No, I won't re-upload the Big3 pictures. Don't ask.

    the alt has a wire running from the (-) terminal on the battery to it but no positive from alt to battery. The positive terminal has 2 wires coming off of it. One goes straight to a fuse box and the other has a plastic connector on the end and plugs into a connector under the fan belt. Any help with what i should do here?

    I'm thinking it may be that, but why don't you just follow the positive cable from your battery to the alternator?

    May I enquire about what belt you are talking about? There's more than one belt in a car, and this may confuse him (no offense crazy4ozs). If you meant follow the positive wire coming from the battery, I already said that, and I don't understand why you needed to post. When I say it, it needs to be confirmed by someone with a higher post count than me?

    Too bad so sad then. The Big 3 is not for you, and you need to sell all your equipment for cheap. Buy some new battery terminals. They're cheap.

    Knowing what it looks like will help you find it. Google "Alternator" in the images section and that should help out.

    Keep following the guide. Remember, you're not removing the stock wires... your adding more to them.

    I have a GM double post as well and felt this was a "factory" way to complete the big 3. Did it work out well? Did you ever try it another way?

    ^^^
    It did work out well, I haven't had any dimming issues, and I noticed my alternator belt doesn't sound like metal against metal as much anymore because it's running more consinstently. The volts never drop below 13 any more, and my windows actually go down fairly quickly, even with the sub and amp booming
