I have a 2000 chrysler concorde and i ordered some 1/0 gauge ring terminals and i went to hook the ring terminal to my wire and that fit fine but the positive battery terminal screw is to big for me to fit my ring terminal on. Is there any suggestions what i can do like is there a way to make the ring terminal a little wider so it fits on the positive battery terminal screw or is there something i can buy to make it fit thanks.
what would i drill it into tho like a piece of wood or the ground or what? I think i tried to drill and make the hole bigger once before and put the terminal on a piece of wood so i had something to drill into and the drill bit ended up gettin stuck in the piece of wood. And also the other problem i had when i tried this was that the ring terminal ended up getting jammed onto the drill bit and i couldn't get the terminal off then so i had to end breaking a drill bit to get it off :/ How did you exactly do it . Thanks
where can i order bigger rings most the rings look teh same size at least the ones i ordered off of the Knuconeptz website. I tried looking for some other sides that had the holes bigger so they could fit easier onto my battery screw but haven't had any luck so far
you can usually replace the battery posts on most batteries, and get larger terminal connectors and ring terminals or compression terminals for 1/0AWG wire from companies like Streetwires or Tsunami etc.. to remedy this issue.
I would hold the ring terminal with a pair of pliers and drill right through just make sure you have some wood of some sort behind the ring so you don't ruin the bit or possible something else from drilling into it.
Also ebay sells them with 3/8 size holes which is a little bigger then the 5/16 that knu sells. Other then ebay you could check partsexpress.com or i would just google it.
I had the same issues on my battery side posts and especially on the chassis bolt. I just drilled them out and then used my knife, twisting back and forth, to do some finishing adjustments. Took all of a few minutes.
