    OK, so I bought a ground kit, and I got 2 of the ground connections hooked up, but it says you should also hook it up to the alternator ground. Now I can't figure out where on the alternator I am supposed to hook it up to. I'm guessing that I can slide it on the bolt on top of the alternator mount. If NE1 can help me with this, it would be appreciated. Photo of where you hooked it up to or good explanation would be helpful too. Thanks guys!
