    I'm in the process of relocating my battery from the engine compartment to the inside of my tool box. I was wondering do I need to run the ground wire back to the motor or can I just ground it to the frame? any help would be appreciated. also what kind of box did you use to mount the battery in? any pics?
    Thanks

    If you ground it to the frame, you will want to run a heavy wire from the frame to the engine also (another short battery cable). That starter can suck lots of current.
