    It doesn't matter if the car is positive or negative ground -- the battery will not know the difference. When charging any battery, it's positive to postive and negative to negative. It probably wouldn't hurt to disconnect the chassis ground cable from the battery while connected to the charger.

      As Skip indicates: PAY ATTENTION to the post markings (+ or -) ON the battery. The + lead of the charger (possibly red in color) will affix to the + lead of the battery. The - lead of the charger (likely black in color) will connect to the - post of the battery.
      Doesn't matter WHICH side of the battery is connected to ground, just that you connect + to + and - to - .

      No deceptive flags to prove I'm patriotic - no biblical BS to impress - just ME and Studebakers - as it should be.
