The batteries utilized in this mod can produce very large and dangerous currents if metallic objects such as screwdrivers or wrenches contact the terminals accidentally! These currents can cause serious burns and other personal or property damage!
Only an experienced mechanic, familiar with high current battery circuits, should attempt to assemble this kit. If you have the slightest concern regarding your ability to handle this project, I recommend securing the services of such a professional to aid in the assembly.

The existing wiring harness may require one or two of the cables be lengthened to complete the installation. Be sure to use #10 or #12 insulated stranded wire and the proper crimp splices to extend these cables. Pull the motor power cable and polarized plug through the hole provided near the rear of the pan. Install the plastic feed-through from the original battery box.
