Dual battery post terminal and cable replacement

I just replaced the passenger side battery in my truck and noticed the cable going from that battery to the other is slightly pulling and corroding from the connector. I searched all over town for a terminal lug that would support the dual wires on the positive side of that battery and can't find anything to work. I'd like to replace the wires with welding wire and keep the gauges reasonable. Right now my starter wire is around a 0/0 ga wire and the battery to battery wire is a 2/0 ga. Did anyone change these and what did you use? How'd you guys work your dual battery wire setups? The factory positive wire from Ford is $210!!!!!! I can build better for less or at least the same price I'm sure if I can find that one terminal post setup.

Thanks

Dave

Re: Dual battery post terminal and cable replacement

go to a stereo shop for large gauge multi wire terminals. Mine have places for two 0/1 gauge wires plus set screw for 4 smaller wires each.

Spending money I don't have on crap I don't need to impress people I don't know.

Re: Dual battery post terminal and cable replacement

RockAuto.com has the Ford Motorcraft positive battery cable for $90.89. I have purchased one from them when my terminal on my starter wire broke. It's the whole cable from starter to both batteries.

Just an option...

I got one from O'Reilly's Auto. Had to special order it. Not in the computer, they have to look in the books. $75.00. A lot heavier wire. Perfect fit.

Re: Dual battery post terminal and cable replacement

I like the stereo shop idea but I'm sure they're gold plated. Not big on the bling effect but the ability to get one for both batteries and have room for my winch cables is great too. I'll have to look at those online and at the stereo shops.

Thanks
Dave
