I am having someone make custom battery cables for me, but I don't know the length of the factory cables.
Does anyone know the exact lengths of the two battery cables and the starter cable?
By the way, this is for a 1971 429 CJ Mach 1.
Thanks

I have a repro set for a '72 351C I could measure if that helps you.

This is from Marti Autoworks and labeled BC-11 "72-73 Mustang V8 Battery Set"

The relay to starter cable is 41"

The ground cable is 42.5" with a ground terminal for the voltage regulator at 22.5"

The positive cable is 10"

Here's a picture:

Thanks Steve!

Is the VR ground lug 22.5" from the battery terminal or the ring lug end of the cable?

My pleasure, Kit. The ground lug is 22.5" from the battery terminal center.
