yeah, hose off the battery, disconnect and wire brush the terminals, and do the negative and the ground wire terminal to the block and to the engine. You get these all solid and you'll be wavin' g'bye~

Check the battery volts with a meter. It should be around 12-12.5 VDC at rest and 13.5-14.5 with the engine running.
