I forgot the most important point. The fact that it is the negative battery cable makes it different.
You will really have to stay close to the original mounting point and don't make a cable that is any longer or uses a smaller gauge wire than the original cable.
The only other place you might mount it is to the frame, if you can reach it.
I meant to make that my first comment before I explained grounding issues and general ideas for grounding points and systems.
It is very important that the negative battery cable have a very good ground mounting point.
I do not understand why it would have an issue being mounted on block. That is why I asked where is it mounted on block?
Either the block or the frame are generally the most common mounting points.
