I have a battery that’s needs replacing but decided I would use the battery from my second car and put it inside because I’m thinking of selling it as is and just wanted to do some diagnostic work.
I know I should be replacing the battery but like I’m said I’m near done with spending on this rust bucket.
Anyway as I tried to use my other battery it was too large to fit and the cables from bad car were too short. By turning the battery upside down though I think I could make the connection.
At this point I stated to wonder if I could damage good battery so I stopped. So would turning it upside down damage it or having it lying diagonal at 45 degrees?
On the other hand since the cables were too short if I just used spanner’s to bridge the gap from the terminals to the batteries would this have worked I.e. can I use spammers to conduct electricity to the battery by mere contact?
Are there cables or something else I could use to extend reach if so must they be if a certain specification?
