Where originally the main earthing for the drivetrain was located? In my hpe I can find two connections: between the engine block and the front crossmember (not very thick c.a 6mm2) and between the generator and the engine block (rather thin ca.4mm2). I am not sure if this is enough especially for the engine start up requirements. Haynes says about connection that runs from the battery to the gearbox. The same is seen in the electrical diagram I have.

There is a thick (as thick as main batery cable) cable that runs from the main chassis earth on the battery tray to the gearbox. IIRC it goes under the head of one of bolts holding the rear engine mount to the gearbox.

The two you describe sound a bit like bodges. Neither of my betas has had them but I suppose they could have been standard.
