Battery Orientation


Recommended Posts

Just bought a new battery for my Series IIA to replace a random one borrowed from another vehicle. It's apparently 'correct' for the vehicle but i'm not absolutely sure. With the terminals closest positive is on the left, negative is on the right. I can get it in with the terminals outboard (negative forward) but i'm worried about the bonnet stay coming close to the positive termial. With the terminals inboard (positive forward) there is good clearance but the positive lead is too short. The positive lead is probably due for renewal anyway but i'd like to know whether terminals should be inboard or outboard and whether positive should be forward or aft ? Should the positive be on the left with terminals closest ? I don't mind making a new lead and making it fit if it's 'correct' but if it's the wrong battery I probably ought to take it back and get the correct one. Thanks
