Given that diagram mentions a "water-cooled generator" I'm guessing it applies to the V8s. I'm also guessing that given the use of the term "generator" it wasn't drawn by an electrical engineer...

The diagram certainly isn't correct, from a circuit path perspective - and the actual circuit diagrams (as shown in the TIS documents) don't seem to match what folk are finding in their cars either. And there does seem to be a bit of variation - e.g. my 3.0d has only a single cable at the jump terminal, running down to the starter motor (I think - I'll check more closely when I service it next week)., so no "hot jump terminal" for me.

Such fun... it's like our very own "Tower of Babel".
