This probably has happened to all of us one time or another... I got a NEW battery once which was the same manf and battery type.
I of course just jumped in there and pulled the bad battery out and replaced it in place with the new one and instantly blew my REVERSE POLARITY fuses. The clue I got was a quick spark when I did it haha...
The manf had the battery terminals on the opposite side of the new battery case. I didn't catch this until after I had it installed haha... Pays to watch what you are i doing I reckon...
In my working days when this happens all of the coworkers would say "OK Braddy-assume the position" then they all give you a quick kick in the butt haha....
I got kicked alot back in them ther days...
