Ground straps

#1 Post by Ron LaDow » Sun Jul 29, 2018 11:45 pm

Once more with (I hope) an image shrunk enough to pass the filter:
Ground strap 001.JPG
1) Is this the stock part for the steering coupler?
2) (old fart memory) Anyone remember the thread on cleaning copper with some household chems?

Thanks, John, but the limitations of the site prevent posting the images required to answer the questions. And I've been 'disciplined' earlier for making the point.

Can you describe what we cannot see? A new product you are offering?

Ron,
that looks like the original part for the steering coupler. I thought I had one original but cannot find it.

Ron, are you thinking about making the steering coupling ground strap? That's p/n 644-47-104 or 356-47-104 for extended st. column.

Now the trivia ..... which strap type do you want to make? The wide braid with holes, the narrow braid with eye connectors or single wire with eye terminals.
