Hexadecimus Nah, I'm not gonna crash and burn, or even just burn. There was no "main short", just a loose connection that let the post melt. It's "mickey moused" through the side of the post instead of the top, that's all. It's rock solid. It'll last until the new battery comes in, about a week.

Spockster I've got a manual somewhere that outlines how to cast a new post, but it's for top post car batteries. It may be a lot harder to do on a smaller post. It involves molten lead and making a mold. If you could cast a cube, then tap it. ...
