Starter motor cable
« on: August 21, 2021, 12:53:28 AM »
Quick question; I went to connect the power cable to the starter motor terminal and I can't remember the sequence for the washers.

I've got an insulating washer on the base, next to the casing. Then the cable fixing, then a flat metal washer, a small lock washer, then the fixing nut on top.

Is that right? Should have noted the order when I took them off, but didn't for some reason. 🙃

That's what mine is but it has been removed previously by the PO so can't be 100% but sounds logical.

I'm finding I did not take enough photos before I took stuff apart!

I've just found a tub with some odd looking rubber fitments - at present I have no idea what I took them off - eventually I might have to take a photo & ask but am conscious I ask too many questions as it is.

Thanks guys. I should be OK now. I'll fit the 2 half nuts as in the photo.
