The problem continues... The positive clamp was loose so as a quick fix my mate suggested a small screw in between the clamp and battery terminal, bit Mr H Robinson I thought but hey it worked. Last week fitted my lovely new Honda battery and same problem, I can't clamp it up tight enough (not even close). So, I was faced with the screw again or shim it in some way, I decided on the latter and used a metal shimming material we have a work. Of course it worked but I suspect it's not the most conductive of metals as I now have poor starting. My first thought was to get a piece of copper pipe and fashion that into a shim (copper of course being an excellent conductor) or maybe bite the bullet and change the clap? Not sure what to do, any advice? CJ nudge nudge CJ..
