Thanks, Gentlemen....and that PDF file is great. I ordered the ground strap which I hope is the correct one since it is not pictured in the PDF file or on the site I purchased it. I did send a note describing the location so that they would not send me the engine ground cable mounted on top by the manifold.
I described it on the bottom passenger side, mounted to the engine with the other side mounted to the frame. I am hoping that this little cable is the source of the remainder of my electrical gremlins. I have replaced all the other cables already, and all but a couple of problems remain...the most annoying being no starts in wet weather....lol. Yes, my 928 refuses to start when ever there is a down pour or a brief drizzle....thinking it might be related to a bad ground. After weather clears up, she fires right up on the first try.

That's the negative strap for the battery. I believe the latest question was for the strap between engine and body.

Sean,

What do you mean?

Roger is an Englishman- so he must have plenty of gas- Brits have a special fart gene!

However we were completely outgunned by the French mime artist "Le Petomane" that was until mid life crisis hit him and then the payback started- not good to be sat in the front row then!

If you want a good laugh watch this short movie:
