So I came to the realization; the head bolts I got do NOT have the ground stud.
So I put them in and didn't realize this until afterwards.

Can I relocate this ground? Where to?

You can bolt I to anywhere on the engine ... block/heads, etc. Ground path will work anywhere on the engine.

An empty hole on the block would be best, any place with an empty big bolt hole. Larry

Well I just got the A/C compressor bracket bolted to the head again.
Can I run the ground from the head to the A/C compressor where the other ground goes?

Or would I be able to put it under a nut on a stud in the LIM?

I usually just run ALL my grounds to a stud that holds the transmission to the Block, then a 10 gauge from that stud to the Cradle,( engine and trans are separated from the frame/Car by Rubber mounts) and a 10 gauge wire from the engine to the neg battery post. Can't have too many grounds on a computerized car.

Again, any large bolt on the block that you can put a ground
strap under without effecting the bolts torque will be fine. Then bolt the other end to the frame.
And 2 seperate straps would be better. One on the AC bracket would be fine.
And the braided straps are better than just a wire. Check your local parts store or eBay.
