Yes they do Danny cause one guy almost ruined my battery trying to put the wrong bolt in the wrong hole. He ruined the first 3 or 4 threads with the 5/16 when he tried to tightened it. Pulled them right out.  I was lucky as my disconnect had a longer bolt that went deep enough to catch the threads that were left deep in the hole.

Where did you get the cables?

Danny - if you need this cable let me know - I won't be using it in all likelihood since I can't be sure of the number for my application -
Regards,
Steve

Thanks I appreciate it but the bolt looks a little rough.

Danny,

15 seconds in the Harbor Freight bead blast cabinet. I suppose it looks a little rough, but it ought to look dandy after replating. Note the bolt size is identical to the hex size.

Shame they don't make these anymore -

Steve

I called them and they get their cables from Factory Fit. I have talked to Factory Fit and they I formed me they use the
3/8 bolt in their cables.

I don't know Danny. It's been over 2 years ago when I bought mine. Maybe they changed.

I ended up rethreading my 3/8 bolt down to 5/16. Works like a charm.
