[quote]I have a 2-pole switch. I’ve read the thread several times. I’m pretty sure I either don’t understand, or still have which wires do what confused.
Am I correct in thinking that there is one large wire on the distribution block that goes to the starter and alternator? If so, I plan to connect 1/0 gauge wire to that block and go to the switch. The other smaller wires will NOT be connected to the distribution block and get bundled together and go to a 4 gauge wire and go to the other pole on the switch. After the switch, the two poles join up together at the battery positive terminal.[/quote]
The big wire does go to the starter and then to the alternator.
What you’re describing probably will work, but it’s harder then necessary. All you have to do is correctly wire the distr block and then interrupt both wires from the battery.
There is a single small wire coming from the wiring harness that connects to the end of the big batt wire at the distr block. The big batt wire has a metal peice on it’s end and there’s a bolt there to put the small wire’s connector on.
There’s also a multi wire (2 I think), that comes from the wiring harness that fasten to a single end connector. This is DME power. It goes to the threaded post that is on the piece of plastic that forms a clamp for the big batt wire. The plastic clamp is just short of the big batt wire’s end. Also on this connector goes the small wire to the battery.
This multi wire provides the DME with it’s own path to the batt.
As long as the distr block is correctly wired, interrupting both wires to the batt will kill the car.
