I knew something was wrong when my alternator under load was acting funny. 
The alternator was good but the voltage was dropping so I knew something was wrong.
 Sure enough just as I have thought for years the battery main ground was bad. 
Note what I say on the picture. I was getting a good continuity reading but not 
under load.
if you need a special length just let me know.

This is a brand new battery ground wire from the battery to the engine and,  transmission and then back to the frame. With this new set up you will see,
  difference in the spin of the starter, the grounding and rise of the alternator,
 voltage gauge and just a better battery ground for the car.
 I have been wanting to do this for years and not until about a month ago when 
I was experiencing alternator problems did I find it really was the ground cable. 
Now it's done an it works great.
2 ga copper cables with copper connectors that are hydraulic
 pressed on and then soldered with heat shrink applied that is inner wall melt tubing..

Tech Tip: 
Early vin ( 2547 ) and sooner had a solenoid modification that 
needs to be done in the relay compartment. If the car solenoid is
clicking without the starter engaging then the modification hasn't been done.
Core Charges
Core charge is industry standard on parts that need to be returned due to shortage or so they can be recycled.  They must be in Rebuildable condition. Units are cleaned and new parts put into them to make it like new again and resold.
. If the cases are broken or cracked and extra labor would have to be added to repair the unit then they are not considered a Rebuildable core and the core charge is not refundable.
Core charge is even added to new units if they are out of production.
