I winterized my SWing in the fall and removed the battery - now when re installing it, the screws that connect the terminals seem way too small - They just go loosely into the holes in the terminals - I know they're the same screws - any ideas?

Sounds like the slide nuts fell out of the battery's terminals. See if you can find them and re-install them.

I think they are 10mm nuts, if you've lost them! Smile

Thanks guys, I guess I never noticed the nuts - must have fallen out.

Actually, they are 6mm inside dimension, 10mm hex outside.

Just nit picking. :flower:
