66 Dart 225 Slant Six has a smoking battery problem
I pulled the alternator and had it tested. It tested bad. I put in the new alternator, pulled the battery out of my car and put it on a 10amp charge overnight and put it in my car this morning. Started her up and the she wouldn't catch (that's nothing new, she never starts on the first try). Started it again and nothing happened and then my positive battery post began to smoke.
I pulled the battery out asap and am now at a loss as to what is the problem. I suspect the voltage regulator but that thing was just replaced about a year ago. The wires look fine as well. The battery was not hooked up backwards and the battery is also the type that doesn't get refilled so what in the world could be going on?
