'63 Headlight Ground
My passenger-side headlights have been dim since I got my bird and, based on other posts, I was guessing I had a bad ground connection. I just looked at it and found the ground wire had been cut off entirely. So, I tested by using a jumper wire to establish a ground connection and my headlights lit right up.

My question is, where is the passenger-side ground supposed to go? I understand that functionally, as long as I have a good ground, that it doesn't make any difference. But, since I have to splice in some extra wire anyway, was curious where it should normally go.

Mine goes to the outboard screw holding the starter solenoid to the radiator core support.

Thanks Joe. That does seem like a pretty reasonable and logical spot for it. Unfortunately, the way my wire was cut, I'll have to splice in an inch or two to get there. And that looks to be about the closest place to take it.
