So.. I have this grounding stud on my car. It connects the ground from the battery to the frame. Its a 1/2" threaded rod. The cable has a 1/2" lug on it. What I have is a large steel washer at the bottom of the stack (against the frame), then a copper washer, then the cable lug, a copper washer on top of that then a copper lock washer then a copper nut.
I was thinking about putting some electrically conductive paste on the threads of the stud to help with conductivity. It may not be needed but its just something to do. I have 5lbs of this copper powder and cant find a use for it LOL
I have 5lbs of pretty fine copper powder. Im thinking its about 325 mesh, I have to find the paperwork. Its a high density air atomized powder.
Anyway. Im thinking of mixing up a very small amount with a grease or other carrier to make a paste and wipe it on the post prior to assembly.
Any ideas on the carrier?? I have a pretty good assortment of greases. Even thought about petroleum jelly. Or even a silicon based sealant. Or heavy gear oil that will flow off and leave the copper particles.
Im looking for opinions. Yup, open for opinions. That means any suggestions or comments are welcome. Any and all are welcome... JR
