    I think he's aware of that, he just wants to know where it's located.

    engine to chassis ground braided wire

    now you maybe getting warm about it being on the driver side just where?

    engine to chassis ground braided wire it's suposed to be a bare (uninsulated wire) braided wire from the engine to the chassis a ground wire.

    Thanks

    yeah, it's on the back of the drivers side head. You'll have to stick your hand back there to feel it. It's attached with a 15mm bolt I believe.

    I was looking through the service manual and I'm not sure I came up with the correct answer but thought I'd throw it out here.
    Ground109 - Attached to the left front frame rail, forward of the brake pressure modulator valve bracket
    and
    Ground111 - Attached to the lower left side of the engine, behind the generator
    They are connected with a braided ground strap.

    G109 = #3
    Click for full size
    G111 = #2
    Click for full size

    I'm not sure but it might be easier to just add an additional wire off of the front of the engine somewhere, like the front of the cylinder head down to the frame. I've see quite a few people do this to their 4th gens.
    It sure beats trying to wrestle your arm under the cowl, I avoid that if I can.
