    Need help asap

    I'm trying to complete my big 3 right now but my bat (-) to engine block is almost impossible to get to. Is there any alternate places to ground too??

    You can't find a single bolt attached anywhere on the motor to utilize?

    That's what I'm asking. I wasn't sure if I could use any bolt on the engine block or if it had to be the one that's already connected.

    I can use a bolt on the alt as an engine block ground?

    Yes. Best ground is the source of power.

    So let me make sure I have this right, bat (+) to alt (+), bat (-) to chassis and then bat (-) to bolt on the alt?

    Ok because the current ground is just a bolt through the body of the truck. I will look for a bolt on the frame to use. Thanks again for the help really appreciate it.

    Actually, the body is better than the frame. The factory typically grounds the battery to the fender. That's one of the big 3.
