My battery is in the back 88 fox.
Should I run a ground from eec to negative on battery. I will check the fusable link, but my car was already wired when I got it and the original pigtail is not on the inner fender.
I think that may be "earthed" with the rest of that part of the loom u see the wheel arch secured by my coil bracket.
I need to lift the car to check again.(there were 3 leads attached to it.
If I track this and it's good should I bother.
Getting some "funky" issues.

With a trunk battery you need a very good block to chassis ground and a very good battery to chassis ground. It is not necessary to run anything between the block and battery for negative ***as long as the battery is properly grounded to the chassis and the block is properly grounded to the chassis.

As Indy says, the EEC ground ALWAYS goes to the chassis.

You can see what I did here.
