Default Z24i battery ground location

Ok guys, I have searched and haven't managed to find it, so can someone post a picture of where the negative battery cable attaches to the engine?

On my 4 Banger model truck. The Negative battery cable comes from the negative battery post, bolts to the passenger fender well hump and is landed(Grounded) to the front/right side of the engine block.

I don't currently have a photo. But I can get one tomorrow.

Same on my '98 and 2004 4-cylinder Frontiers.


My '98 has a cable to the fender hump bolt, and a one from there to the engine block, because I didn't want to order one from a dealer. On my '98, for some reason the strands at the fender hump connector ring were mostly broken.

I didn't take note where the battery ground went to on the block before we pulled the engine for the swap.
I did manage to figure out where the small grounds went, however.

On mine (KA) it was bolted to the cylinder head by where the power steering pump goes.
