    Default advice on earth strap

    Hi guys someone asked me to change their timing chain on a 2.2 sri which managed to jump a couplke of teeth and do the inlet valves and guides


    long story short my part of the job went perfect but he stripped and replaced the head after replacing with new parts etc etc but he showed me that he is left with a braided earth strap about 6" long 1" wide with 6mm eyelets at either end suitable for 10mm bolts anyone know where this goes my veccy is a cdti so top end is totally different

    any help much appreciated

    as long as you do earth the engine it's not going to be a prob

    or you can make-up or buy a longer earth and bolt it down to where you want to

    Attach it directly to your battery earth strap or onto anywhere upon the chassis would be good, don't forget to sand down the paint though before attaching as paint is an non conductive material.

    hello mate if you call that strap 6 inches you need to get a new tape mesure !!! it goes from the 13mm bolt that has a ten mill nut on the end that is on the back of the rocker cover top right corner just bellow where the dis plug is and slightly towards the back of the car the dis loom and egr loom mounting braket also fits there then it goes to a bolt that has the radio surpresor on it and is held on with a 10mm bolt .that is just bellow it and just above the exurst manifold ..go to www.z22se.co.uk if you have any problems finding where it goes
