Which battery cable is positive/negative??? 450SLC 1980
So gotta admit, I'm pretty parallel when it comes to cars. However, I got stuck with a Mercedes 450 SLC from 1980...so why not use it??
First thing....it didnt have a battery. So I went to Walmart, flipped through their catalog and found/bought the battery.
I put it in the trunk (apparently thats where the battery goes on this model). Now, I know which end is + and which is - on the battery, but I am not sure which cable is + and which is - from the car to the battery.
I wanted to double check before I turn the key and cause any damage to the car or myself. I'll attach some pics for the fun of it.
The way the car cables are...there is a short one and a longer one. The way the battery fits, makes sense the short one is positive and long one negative but i wanted to make sure.
Thanks in advance.
