Junction Block Connector

I have a 83 Chevy Silverado, 350. I recently redid some of the wiring. I have been looking for that 2 hole electrical connector that goes on the junction block, from that wire that comes from the big terminal on the battery. Can I just connect directly to other post on the junction block? Right now it looks like the only things that occupied those 2 terminals are some wires from the blower motor setup and the wire from the starter. I assume this wire gives power to the blower motor...I assume.

If you are referring to the main power supply wire to the fuse panel, it must be connected to the the main feed terminal of the fuse panel. To connect it anywhere else could create a situation where the connecting is not able to handle the load.

I think you may be talking about the firewall connector, if so you can connect it there as long as the wire is properly sized to handle the load.

Ok, thx for the reply. I am talking about the firewall connector. I looked at Oreilly's, Advance Auto Parts, and LMCTruck.com, you'd think someone would have it. My searches on google have been just as unsuccessful too. I think I am going to just wire it to the 1 terminal. I will keep in mind what you said. Thx for info and reply.

Are you trying to find another junction to replace a bad one, or add some accessories to the one you have?

The wiring to that junction is the main power feed that comes from the large starter post. The wires that run from the junction provide power to the fuse box, blower motor high speed relay, and the lights.

The two posts on the junction are connected together by a metal strip that is part of one of the stock terminals. It is very easy to see how the metal strip bridges the two posts. In general, you can connect any accessory to either post. The strip between them is big enough to handle just about any load across the two posts.
