This grommet the factory designed to help hold the cable away from the tin. It has 2 internal ribs that I felt were critical to the design of this piece. Yes, you can put a generic grommet in the hole, but there are a few of us that have seen these wear, there is a reason the factory spent the extra money to male them this way.

I was looking in the parts catalog and couln't readily find the part number. Not sure if these were sold as part of the battery cable assembly or not.
Either way here are some basic pics that will give you the idea of what I'm describing here.

Just bump this thread for the discount code and as soon as we have it put together I'll PM you. You will be able to combine to save a a couple of bucks with the other GB that is currently going. Just need a few days to get good pics and make the listing.

Who's in?

Just hold off on ordering until I can get you the code for these. Scott has gotten so efficient in shipping we get most everything out same day now.
Also choose reg mail for best rate, Fedex has a higher base rate.
Thanks again,
Mark

I believed the thick positive cable from battery to rear engine tin going to starter and maybe same for the driver side for the other cables like alternator to starter also.
