    The 10CWT axle used in Marina Commercials, was to my knowledge, and that could be wrong, was never used in an MGB, so I am confused!

    My opinion.

    The starter motor cable, from battery to motor, should never be different in size, or smaller, than the cable from the battery to the chassis.

    The maximum current drawn will be...
