yes...the dis-similar metals of the chassis and the lug---(no matter how clean) has made a layer of insulation from corrosion....attack the chassis ground with a coarse wirebrush so the ground is established...good to 300 cold cranking amps.....ALSO the 1/0awg Cable that goes to the MOTOR (let's please not forget) what attaches near the alternator and connects to the ground bus off the battery....THIS is an important one for the starter motor to realize the 300 plus cold cranking amps required here~

Check negative battery connections on frame and motor. Also if standard shift check clutch pedal safety switch.
