We're talking 6-volt/positive ground, right? Get your MPC's out Tony. We have some in our MANUALS forum for free download -see LINK below. The N's used a HD braided strap for the ground connection. Dennis Carpenter makes and sells the correct strap, p/n 9N-14301, 5-1/2" long. The positive battery post should be closest to the back of dash. While you're at it, may as well verify the cable to starter switch. It is p/n 9N-14300-C. With a 6-volt system, you need the HD thick as your thumb cables to handle the amperage. It sounds like you probably have 12-volt battery cables, a lot smaller diameter than what is needed for 6-volt. What do you mean by 'dash cover'? The hood fastens to the dash, there is no other cover.
