Problems with side post battery terminal
So I have a 5 year old side post battery, not sure on brand or specs though. It's in my 84 auto, 2wd, s10 blazer (3.4l engine). I just did the big 3, and now I can't get my + terminal off, it spins, and I can see the bolt or whatever, inside the battery spinning with it. Is there any way to get it off?
It's really loose inside the battery. And it keeps coming unhooked internally. My truck acts dead everytime I try to start it, but once I jiggle the + terminal, it'll fire right up (and I can hear a nice spark when it gets connection again, is that okay?). Any way to fix this?
Also, it's probably about time for a new battery anyways, can I just get a normal top terminal setup battery? What's a good model brand/number, and what specs should I look for, for CCA and so on? I only have a 1200 rms watt amplifier, so I shouldn't need anything like an optima, just generic costco brand would work for me!
