    I had exactly the same in the early 1990s when some battery manufacturers messed around with the location of the terminals. I run Oddessey batteries now and they’re fine (and correct !)

    Positive terminal should be on the LH side, closest to the starter solenoid.

    Yes Eill is correct..positive (red lead) connect to the solenoid.
