They're not very difficult to make up

Till I get an engine (and in) and place battery I wont know lengths that are needed.

But less than a few feet for both so its working out if buying the tools to use twice is worth the cost if the short run is available cheap and ready made.

clarik.co.uk make them up alternatively make your own, auto spark showed me a cool tip, make up the lead and put th ecrimp on the end but instead of crimping tool use a 6mm round punch and a big hammer, give the crimp a swift whack with the punch in the centre it puts a 6mm indent the same as the crimping tool. i have done it several times since being shown

I've got a hydraulic crimper, and happy to make up cables at cost of parts (cable/lugs) & postage if you're interested? Not sure how it would compare price-wise against some of the other suppliers already listed, but let me know if you don't get anywhere!

Please note - I'm not a business or trader, just offering a helping hand if no other sources come through.

+1 for VWP. I live just down the road so when I wanted mine I went in with the measurements and they made it up on the spot for just the cost of the parts. I guess that if you not local or passing by, they will just add normal postage costs to get it to you.

I bought the parts from VWP and made my own. Putting the cable crimper and cable clamped in the vice. I placed a cold chisel on the crimp part of the end adapter and gave it one big blow with a lump hammer. Worked very well.

Chunk of steel with v notch.

Put in vice, put crimp connector with wire in.
Put. 6 mm dowel in opposite side of v

Do up vice
Dowel pushes indent into the crimp end, v stops crimp end from squashing.

Throwaway wire, look at cheap jump leads.
Use decent size cable for final fitting
