Default Re: Battery post melted. Bad Battery?

If your fix ever fails, you could use an old style car battery terminal, since you have posts and studs.

Connecting to the remaining post resolved the issue. I now have 38.2V pack voltage. Now let's see if the intermittent loss of power issue is also resolved. I'll post back in a few days.

What is the proper torque value for the stainless steel battery nuts?

You can check the battery manufacturer's website, but it somewhere around 10 ft-lbs. Be careful if you read specs as they're usually listed in inch-lbs.

You may have dodged the bullet on this one. Pays to maintain those batteries!! May not hurt to put em through a couple back to back full charges to help equalize them, if things are back to normal. - RAY

PS - Trojan lists the torque for stud connection at 120 - 180 in-lb (so 10 ft-lb min and 15 ft-lb max.)

A customer at work had me replace his gc 4 batterys, that were in his scissor lift because of a burnt post. I told them it would be alright. He said nope replace all 4 ( SCORE ) Give the battery guy My old cores and woo hoo! I just made sure the post wasnt cooked into the plastic much, and it wasnt. So I used the clamp style terms WIN WIN :)

The dropouts continued to a lesser degree after cleaning all the connections and repairing the one battery with a clamp style connector. Test drove it for 30-40 minutes in diag mode and finally drew a 4-3 code during one of the dropouts (most of the time it just beeped continuously after the dropout or during the dropout). Replaced the solenoid and so far no more dropouts. The new solenoid does not get as hot as the defective one. Thanks again for everyone's help. I'm putting the 12V battery in today after I get a battery tie down that fits properly.
