I replaced the negative battery cable with a modern universal ground. My question is, is the body ground necessary to run the starter motor?

Is there some kind of wire I can get to just hook to the negative terminal and the body?

If you have some skills... it's easy to make one yourself.
If you don't...
Now if Katie can do it... surely you can too. ☺
And try this guy...
Get a good tool. Get the correct ring connectors. And that's it.

ring connector won't fit the terminal bolt, should I actually buy the right size connector or just get a file? I'm leaning toward the second option...

Replaced body and engine grounds, spark is good, cranks but won't run. Battery is charged. No idea what I could have screwed up.
