Q? - Battery Orientation in a 69 Camaro

This seems wrong to me... I have a top post battery in my 69 Camaro and the Positive Terminal is right next to the fender lip and the Negative Terminal is by the radiator... Is this correct??

I would think that they should be the reverse.

You are correct. The negative post should be nearest the fender. You have the wrong battery.

That may seem logical, but some Z28 top post batterys had the top posts reversed. They used a 22F series battery, which is a style normally used on a Ford. Normal battery for a Camaro top post would be a 24 series, which is opposite.

The only reason someone would want insurance is if they want to pay someone elses bills or want someone else to pay their bills.
