POSITIVE BATTERY TERMINAL

Post by centurion » Fri May 13, 2022 8:51 pm

Good afternoon, I am writing from Spain, since the discovery 3 forum of my country has closed, discovering this and appreciating that it has a high level.
I have a doubt the positive terminal of my battery does not tighten enough and this causes starting failures, I have looked at spare parts and I only find the complete cable, would they know of some place that only sold the terminal.
Or any way to fix this , thanks a lot in advance

Its not an uncommon problem. I had it myself at one point and just used something to pack out the space - silver foil I think.

Certainly not an approved method - but other than that the only other way apart from a new terminal is to add some material to the battery post - solder for example. Just watch for heat and battery gasses :blowup:
