Re: Ground straps

I've heard that the ground straps are for radio noise supression. You probably have a cable from battery negative to the engine. That's the electrical ground. It's also important to have a multi-point ground for the engine block to the frame. I've studied this setup and it looks like GM wanted the block grounded in more the one place to act like shield for the ignition system getting into the radio.
