View Full Version : Hotwire kit ground strap

I have attached a pic of the little ground strap that was included with my hotwire kit. What is the purpose of this and why does mine now look like part of it has literally melted? What would cause this?

The ground strap is for...uh...grounding. Probably the tank to the frame/body, since it is otherwise isolated. I made my own to ground the pump hanger to the body.

The 'melted' part is just solder holding the clip to the braided strap. Clip it back on to the tank and don't stress about it.
