  • Ground Wire

    Where exactly is the gas tank ground wire on 1965 bird. Having a problem locating mine.

    Tom, to save money, car companies back in the day depended on steel spot welds and screw connections to return the negative ground back to the battery. So, there is none.

    I suggest you make your own ground wire by connecting a small (#14 or so) copper wire to the gas tank's outer flange to the chassis. Brass or stainless screws, nuts and washers are my choice.

    Here's an example:

        If you look in the trunk, in the area where the sequential signal light unit is located, you will see a screw with two ground wires going to it . One for the sequential unit and one for the fuel sending unit ground . This is for the sender and not the tank if that is your concern .
