Re: ground wire size ?

It's tough to have too many grounds or to use too large a wire. Remember that the case of the alternator is the mother of all grounds, and if it is well attached to the engine block you can assume that they are at the same potential. Block to frame, block to dash, block to front sheet metal, etc.
