My beloved 40 year old cables. Trim wire from a project on SSN 688.

I have 2/0 cables, 25 ft long, with welding disconnects to hook to 2-3' leads on the battery under the hood.  I keep the cables coiled separately under the back seat of the truck.  Put welding clamps on the ends of the long cables. These welding ground clamps are not the best for grabbing battery posts not to mention they're not insulated. 

I've jumped big backhoes and loaders for customers who are a bit skeptical at first when I offer.

Needless to say , I won't ever be replacing those cables!  I also worked on the Puffer in that time period. Cheers !
