did you put a new battery in yet? could look for damage to the alternator six diodes once you get 'er started...I know it's a pain in the gazooka because you've got to take out the backseat and set it aside~~my heart goes out to you...I'd suspect your charger markings, if you found red and black correctly...you did disconnect the car before charging didn't you?

See that? You have a choice....His Honor is A Merciful Judge, you can be hung from the hoist or flattened to a coin underneath.. what a guy, eh?

now you're just havin' a laugh...eh?

The only "Positive Earth" car I have ever had the displeasure of working on was a 1964 Cortina, a Ford built in England.

thought Lucas (not george) electrics "the prince of darkness" was responsible for positive earth on Jaguar and the British Leyland cars...perhaps I'm misinformed...never had the displeasure~
