Quick Question: On original battery cables, what color is the power feed wire that goes from the positive battery terminal to the junction block?  Red or Black?

Pretty sure it's a Tan 14G fuse wire.
The FAIM does say 14R -red.
Is that why you're asking?

Larry,
On my original Z28, original battery cables (late 09C build), both the large battery cables are black, and the smaller attached cables are black.  The only *red* item for the POS cable is the  side terminal itself...  (see photo).
I'm also attaching a photo of original cables from the Oregon 'barn find' Z28, discussed on TC a couple of years ago.  Both of these cars are late build cars, one from Norwood and one from LA...

And here is the most accurate reproduction I've seen thus far..... for the side terminal battery cables of late '69

On my 69 diagrams I designed a few years back I designated this wire to be red as I didn't have an original bat cable on hand to verify the actual color.  A recent buyer noted that my drawing had red and thinks it should be black.  Now I'm curious as to what it should be.  My purpose has always been to have available an accurate wiring diagram besides the "flawed" AIM diagrams.

A 68 Firebird I finished last year had a brown fuse link wire.  I thought that may have been a Firebird thing; didn't think much about it!
