    Hey doc,

    How did you connect the 2/0 battery cables to the battery switch? Did you use crimp on ring terminals and if so, what do you use to crimp them so you are assured a good, solid connection? I will be doing this also and don't know what is the best way to go.

    Thanks,

    Al

    Al, Ring terminals are definitely the best way. i'll explain here how to make your own cable on the cheap. I've made them this way for years and it works real good.

    Materials & tools needed:
    • Cable

    • Cable ends for proper cable gauge

    • Xacto knife or razor blade

    • Vise, anvil or facsimile

    • 1/8" or so blunt end punch

    • Hammer

    • Solder

    • Small butane torch

    • Heat shrink tubing


    Strip the cable housing back enough so that about an 1/8" of cable is exposed when insert into the cable ends. Place your heat shrink on the cable and slide it back far enough so it won't shrink prematurely. Insert cable into cable end and hold it on the vise anvil and using the blunt end punch give a real good whack, this acts like a set screw to hold it on. Using the butane torch heat up the cable end just enough to float some solder into the cable end. Slide up your heat shrink when cooled and shrink it down. Done.

    razz pretty much summed it up, really can't add anything other than sanding or scoring inside connector and wire if you can and slight amount of flux will increase the flow and adhesion , great post razz
