    Default Positve terminal

    I Was changing terminals on my 3616 and the positive terminal after removing has two power wires. One is connected through a black piece of plastic. The plastic is just a connector from the wire to the copper piece that connected to the original terminal. My question here is. Is it safe to remove to the wire and connect new terminal directly to copper wires? I think that's where I am getting a bad connection when trying to start.

    I went ahead and cut the wires and put a new terminal on it and it works good now.

    Yea, a picture would be worth a thousand words, but I am betting that black plastic piece you removed was a fusable link to protect the rest of the wiring harness
