Question about 1988 Ford F 250
Posted on Aug 06, 2010
The cable that comes from the radiator side (and runs in front of the radiator) goes to the positive of the battery.(if you're not sure follow the cable, if it connects to the starter then it is the positive, if it connects to the body it is the negative.) You battery positive may be marked by a "+" stamped into the casing or red plastic ring around the battery terminal. The negative will be black or stamped " -"
In the unlikely event that there are no markings on the battery you will need a voltmeter. Make sure the red lead is inserted into the positve terminal on the meter. If you connect the meter and get a positive reading the red lead is on the positive terminal of the battery, else it is on the negative.
Connect the positive cable to the positive of the battery and the negative to the other terminal.

Just to help, the positive battery cable goes to the starter and the negative battery cable goes to the negatively grounded body.
There might be an additional long bolt for the positive terminal for other accessories, I'm not sure.
How many terminal ends do you have?
