Hmmm never seen one of those PICO 0952A connectors before. Must be for later gear than what I'm used to working on, but then what isn't these days?

Yeah, they plug in here . Look for CLock or AC connections.

Other than one having a 14g wire and the other having a 16g is there any difference between these two?

Great catch!!!!



Yes I believe the retainer clip is in different locations.

Look at the "clock light power" and the "A/C" locations and it looks like the clip openings are different shapes



THis needs deeper investigation...Find any more?

Those were the only two I saw, I am going to order both as I need a clean way to hook up my radio and cb. I will post up results when I get them.

Wire Size Questions

Wire Size Questions

Hey folks, I am getting ready to order everything I need to Re-Kajigger my grounds and battery cables. I figured I would just use 10 gauge for all my dedicated grounds, but I went to buy 50 feet of Black 10 gauge wire and was completely sicker shocked…

What size wiring have you been using for dedicated grounds? Where did you purchase the wiring?

I had the silly thought that if right now my entire Jeep is being grounded with a single 6 gauge wire coming from the Starter to the Battery, even if my dedicated grounds were all 14 or 16 gauge it would improve the situation greatly… Is there anywhere specific I should use heavy wire? Such as headlights and alternator?

Im new at this.

Hmmm, when I wired up my grounds to that buss block (posted earlier) I used all 10 gauge from a small spool that I believe I got it at NAPA for reasonable last year.

Amazon has 100ft of Black 10GA wire for $26.50 (though a couple reviews aren't spectacular). That's about $0.27 per foot: Amazon 10GA Wire

NAPA shows $0.72/foot for a 100ft spool of Black 10GA: NAPA 10GA Wire

These two companies have some of the more difficult to find connectors to include weather proof packard connectors

JeepHammer, just wanted to say thanks for all the info you posted. I have a 74 CJ-5 which is going thru a "Painless"...lol wiring harness install and your info is going to help me a lot. Just going through it for a few minutes I probably said, "so that's what that means" so many times cause the pictures and images cleared up a lot for me. Just wanted to say thanks and to all others that contributed. Really appreciate it.
