    I'm new to K5s and have a question about ground straps. My 72 K5 doesn't seem to have any. On a 72 chevelle (for example) the battery ground goes to the block. There is a ground strap from the exhaust to the frame and a strap from the intake to the firewall.

    For a 72 K5, where do the ground straps go?

    Normally I have seen one from the battery to the alternator bracket. Then one from the back of the passenger side cylinder head to the firewall.

    I added one from the alt bracket to the frame to make sure I was getting a good ground the frame. I need it to make sure the fuel pump runs properly.
