That’s the reason for the felt-type washers under the clamps Pop? I can see some on Bills pic. I recall those being impregnated with some sort of Gunk chemistry.

And notice in the first pic, the corroded terminal did not have the felt washer. Are they the perfect solution? I don't think so, but they can't hurt.


I like using the washers, and Autozone pushes them hard with every battery sale, along with an overpriced packet of the grease.


NCP2 makes the washers impregnated with the same NOCO. I didn't buy them because they were not color coded.

I bought these instead, because they were a twin pack, and I like the black color for ground better than the green.

Finally replaced the tensioners and belts on the 350 yesterday. It's not a hard job but it is tight, even after removing the top of the shroud. My arms barely fit down in there. Having the right extensions for ratchet drives is important. Lots of up and down above and below the engine to align belts. Tensioners are a breeze. I had to rebuild the fan drive connector that I pulled the wires out of because it provoked me. It shouldn't have been stuck but of course it was. And that took the most time of anything. Overall I kept a relaxed attitude which I'm finding is more and more essential to doing good work. Didn't have that trait when younger.

I've had to learn it even though I'm still trying to perfect it
Most of the time I just get pissed at things my body won't do anymore, like see small things. I always seem to be dropping parts/nuts/bolts so I'm being forced to learn patience.
Its difficult.
