PostSubject: Damaged battery, repaired.   Sat Jan 03, 2015 10:06 pm

(Copied From Doc Cox's Virago Thread)

Decided today would be a good time to get the bike running, but one flat battery, so, out with the spare but some previous owner had badly damaged one of the contacts, now it was repair time






just used a pair of pliers and took them off.



Used a sharp wood chisel to remove the excess metal



Then very carefully drilled down the post tap a thread into it, managed to drill down about 3/4" which is more than enough for a stud to be fitted, this would be stronger then tapping the hole and fitting a bolt



First a primary tap followed up by a plug tap







Dave gave me this large syringe that is usefull for all sorts of jobs, one being blowing the swarf out of the tapped hole as it wasn,t a good idea to turn the battery upside down




Found an Allen stud making it easy to screw in




One stud in place and ready for the cable, hope this is usefull to anyone in the same predicament,





Regards Doc Cox

Must say, I am always extremely impressed with Nigel's (Doc Cox's) constant ingenuity.

Brilliant bit of thinking there Doc, another bit of landfill and hard earned cash saved.
