X2 on the connections being backwards. Physically maybe your cables are in the same spot and you need to turn the battery around. Battery post negative and positive aren't always the same battery to battery.

YOU WERE CORRECT! I WAS A DUNCE!!! Since all three cables were black (and I failed to label them) I mixed them up. All's well that ends well. THANK YOU!!!

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...
