Re: 5KCSTQ -- Jump Starting
The type 44's have an under-hood positive power terminal, Richard, usually
covered by a plastic cap. In my '87 5kcstq, it's located in front of the
air filter housing. I don't have your lights, so if, as I've read here,
they project backward considerably, they may be covering up the little
plastic box encasing the jumper post. Mine has a large red cable going
toward the engine, which I assume leads to the starter.
