Default Re: Battery Post Melted and Charred?

Also, In the event this is not replaced can I use something to build the terminal back up around the post (ie, washers, lead)?

yes you can level it off and build it up and make sure everything is clean and tight ... you know if it comes down to it the post can be tapped out and stud put in i pretty sure.. others will know more then me...

The bad news is it will have to be ordered because the Trojan 890 are a special order.
When they said " loose post " did they mean the post into the battery or the bolt that is moulded into the post? One thing I found out is if you have additional wires connected on one post, always put your motor cables directly on the post first! I say this because the bolt in the post is not really supposed to be the current carrier. The lead on the post is. when assembling your wires, carefully clean the lead portion of the post as well as the bolt and terminal end to clean metal. Then heavy cable to the battery and then any other cables on top of that. If you put a small cable on first, you're forcing all the motor current to flow through it's connector first. This make resistance which makes heat! Make sense? I didn't know any of this stuff before joining the team here either, and I actually thought I knew something about electricity! You learn something new everyday!
By the way, the cable connector that was on the burned post may now be loose on the cable from the heat. Check it carefully too! :)

I was wondering if the flat spot next to the stud was usable. Thanks alot this will be a huge help if they don't replace it. As usual when I have a question I get many useful answers.

yes you can but if you can level out the actual post and use it the lead will be thicker and get you a more sturdy point to tighten on............................
