The negative cable from your battery needs to be grounded to the engine block. Then you should have ground cables or straps from the engine to the frame and body. You can't have too many grounds but they all need to be the correct size and grounded properly. If you could post a picture of your engine compartment showing what you have it would be easier to diagnose. Never use a header bolt for a ground point. Header bolts come loose in time and will cause you problems.
