I installed some long tubes on the car and I know I had to disconnect some grounds to the block. Can anyone remember, is there two grounds on the driverside?

I thought there was, but I can't remember for a fact.

Thanks!

there is one ground strap that runs from the block...just in front of the drivers motor mount...it routes into the harness around where the alternator wiring is....then there is grounds on the backside of the drivers head. As far as I know...thats the only ones on that side of the engine. If someone else remember any more...please chime in.

Thanks, what about the passenger side, there is just the one correct?

One from the drivers head is for the O2 sensors. One from the drivers side of the block is for the Alternator. One from the passengers side of the block is for the battery and starter.

I added one from the Pass head to the firewall. It helped a lot.

I am pretty sure now that I forgot the black ground wire that goes with the metal ground wire to the block on the drivers side.

I had a bad hesitation when it was damp. All of the other drounds were OK but when I added one it cleaned everything up. May have just been my car. But for 2.00 it worked.

Found the problem...over looked a second ground wire on the driver side, the car is running strong now.
