9) Why do you have question marks in some termination listings?
9a) Because I don't know what PDC you have in your rig. That's why I need you to check - so I can terminate those cables with a lug that fits securely. Since the alternator output can go to either the PDC input post or the battery + terminal, that also introduces a change. Electrically speaking, they're the same connection.
If you're running the alternator output to the battery or the ANL fuse block, you'll need a 3/8" ring on the end of the cable. The PDC gets a 1/4" ring for the 6m/m screwposts, or a 3/8" ring for the 8m/m screwposts. In both of those cases, a washer is recommended to maximise contact (but not strictly necessary. Just a good idea...)

B- to Alternator?
