    I had to rescue the misses again yesterday due to the positive battery cable.

    This time it was in the wind and snow, at least it wasn't dark.

    Im working on removing the cables for replacement. With what I have no idea yet. I can build a 65 fastback from scratch out of a catalog, but I cant buy a 94GT battery cable.

    Anyway, how to I pull this connector apart without breaking it?

    You can totally cut the wires and reattach them with butt connectors.

    That's not going to happen. This car is in mint condition with 50,000 miles. Im keeping it as original as I can.

    sounds like you need to go to a junkyard then. If you can't replace a connector with a different style. Do you expect to find an OEM NOS battery cable on eBay?

    Im sure there are NOS cables out there. Its just a matter of finding them.

    I find NOS stuff for my 64 F100 all the time.

    I will probably end up finding a replacement that is close enough to the oem part to pass. Ive got a few leads.

    Ok so finding replacement parts for a vintage vehicle and a 90's mustang is so apples to oranges.

    Doesn't matter if it has 5,000 or 50,000 or 500,000 on it. It's a 94 mustang, not a 65 Shelby. Your not hurting any special value by eliminating that fuseable link.

    Junkyard is only place your gonna get one and then you could be in same boat again.

    Exactly my thought, unless your car is going for Concours type points no value will be lost by a non-oem battery cable on a 94 Mustang GT

    I had these aftermarket terminals and aftermarket battery in my 96 GT, believe it or not I was still able to sell the car

    It came with the car when I bought it, honestly the label annoyed me, I ended up spraying to top of the battery with plastidip so it was all plain black but I could still peel it off if needed

    if the fusable link is bugging you there are battery terminals that allow for one of the wires coming out of it to be fused right on top of the terminal.

    Round coller with 2 tabs,you squeeze the 2 tabs witch expands the coller and pull a part,it takes some time to get the hang of ot and it's the same putting it back together,you know it's back together when you can't see the orange o ring,it does take some trial and error but when you get the hang of it it's not to bad,I did mine a few times a couple weeks ago trying to fix a wiring issue.
    check eBay for the cable,I've found a few listed there,pos and neg and there not cheep.
