This cable has been off THREE TIMES and the nut is already stuck. I can't get it to clamp onto the battery.
Is there a way I can fix this? I don['t have the time or energy to replace it. And the cables are too short to put an aftermarket block on.
So, I cut it all out. My tsunami positive battery terminal won't fit all the way down on the battery. So it's sitting up a quarter inch off the top of the battery. It's tight, though. Will this be a problem?
The clamp nut on the terminal is a special beveled nut. If someone lost the OEM nut and replaced it with a standard nut,, it will not clamp. compare the nut on the one that will clamp down and the one that wont.
"I don't have the time or energy to replace it." Not good. Gotta take care of your car if you want it to perform/behave properly. Battery cables aren't expensive items. I'd think you need to take time to do it. Heaven knows that as much as I've spent to obtain my all time favorite car, I'm going to do what it takes to keep it working correctly. A little time isn't much of an investement. We're here to help....
