Default Looking for battery cable parts.

Hello.
Are these parts for sale. (circled)

I have found battery terminal clamps,
but power distribution box "two hole
zink plated cable end" have not found yet.
Will make my own set, new cost bit more then
want to spend.
Does any member know if old one can be re-purposed.
Thanks.

Hello.
Basically found all the parts to make cables,
except one.
In my first post this part is the "terminal end" for
power distribution box.

Decided to just cut cable wire together
with crimping part, and leave "flat part" that connects to
the power distribution box posts.
Then buy "compression lug" and connect cable to "flat part"
and box terminal end.

Will this brainstorm idea work.
Thank You.

Bellow several more images that provide
visuals.

If I understand your pictures correctly, you will be fine as long as you engineer a solid and tight electrical connection at the PDC (power distribution center), replacing the OEM attachment at both bolts/nuts.

Removed cables,unwrapped from
plastic cable insulator, checked cables,connectors
ends,clamp connection,all looked good,cable had
no visible damage,all looked good.
The only slight problem found, a bit of corrosion
inside clamps, and a bit of corrosion on one of the posts, no big deal,
a bit of elbow grease,will restore like new.
Both bolts were rusted, already purchased new one.
Took about 2 hours for removal,and 2 hours to route cables back.
Next time around, will replace clamps with military style,
since it seems to be the least expansive solution, to add #2 wire cables
keeping quality and cost down.
Good time to All,and Thanks for replies.

Jack.
