HELP! Where can I find this Positive Battery Terminal?

I need to replace the positive battery terminal on my 99 7.3 SMB ASAP. The shop I took it in had no clue.

That looks like the stock Ford part. It's attached to the whole battery harness though. I think it's about $200 from the dealer.

What am I missing? This is a 7.3 PSD, under hood battery? The main positive power lead? It's a stock part.

Yes you are correct however Ford is saying it's not the stock terminal and the stock one won't work for me?!?! Here is a thread on Expo Portal forum with the same terminal and issue.

That sure looks like the stock one. I'll take a picture of mine and confirm when I get home, but if not stock, it's very close.

So I just spoke with Sportsmobile and they told me it is a Ford factory part... Ford says it's not haha.. Looks like I may be going the bootleg route unless anyone can shed any light on where to find a direct replacement. I'm dumbfounded.

Confirmed. That's the stock connector. The power lead coming off it is not though.

I had the same thing on mine, I ended up having to cut the battery lead wires out of the block thing they're pressed into and put some ring ends on them. I found a HD terminal post with an offset post for accessory wires. Not pretty but it works.....
