the front cylinder head bolt should have a threaded stud on it for the ground cable. then there should be a braided copper wire from the frame to the inner fender on the right side to ground the body. that completes the ground circuit.

Correct sir. There are two braided ground jumpers. One is from the rear of the cylinder head to the firewall, the other is from the inner fender to the frame.

The cyl. head braided ground is near where the ign. coil mount is. The other is the passenger side inner fender (lower edge) to frame, as stated. Top, you need a factory manual!!

don't forget on the battery ground to the stud, a star type washer that goes on the stud first, then the battery cable on top of it, then the nut.
