    Stock battery earth point(s)

    I'm currently doing a single tubby conversion on my car and while at it I've been making a lot of changes all over the car. One of the things I planned to do right from the start was to replace the battery cables with some nice fresh ones. I'm at the point of measuring out what I need but I can't for the life of me remember where the stock earth mounts to.

    From searching around most threads mention 2 earths, block & wing, but my stock earth cable only has 1 wire coming off it. I think I had an earth to the inner wing from the fusebox harness but I don't remember anything from the battery terminal.

    I know that I could just re-do the earths and make my own but I would rather do it the way it was originally.

    Also, while here, I have the positive terminal measured for the starter motor and fusebox, have I missed anything? The stockers were no good anyway as I've relocated the fusebox and I want to hide as much of the wiring as I can.

    So.. could anyone shed any light on what's what? A picture of where it goes would be ideal

    Thanks

    Yeah I've got a copy of them. I can't find anything in there showing the stock battery terminal earth point though. Do you know which manual it's in?

    I went through:

    Engine Mechanical
    Electrical
    Body Electrical
    Wire Harness

    Don't get me wrong, I didn't read them cover to cover but I did look through them to no avail. The closest I seen was in the Engine mechanical where it mentioned removing a bolt to take out the earthing point from the block. As with most of the diagrams though, it wasn't clear as to where it came from etc.

    Is the attached picture the page you mean? If so it's not really much help is it? I know the approx area of where the stock earth goes (around about the mount on the intake side), I'm trying to pinpoint exactly where it mounts though.
