    Bought a 1984 J24 that was stripped and left for dead. I was wondering if anyone knows the length and size of the battery cables?
    Thanks,
    Chris

    Really depends where you locate the battery. You want it as low as possible and well secured. For racing we use the smallest battery that we can get by with. Thus our conductors are 12ga. This calculator will help. Cable Sizing Calculator - myElectrical.com
