I have checked the archives and if I have interpreted this correctly , when you charge a 6volt neg. grnd. battery, The Charger POsitive goes to Frame and the charged Neg. goes to the battery Negative Post. Is this correct?

When I was last working on the tractor I had to jump it off to put it in the shed. I was cleaning, making brite and shiny. I found a battery cable with insulation complete wore off and rub on battery frame. So have new ones to install this week end. Thank You for your help

If it's truly a NEGATIVE grounded system what you have just described will result in a dead short between the battery charger leads. What you're done that way if it is NEGATIVE ground is just hooked the charger leads to both ends of the same (ground) cable. If you're charging a POSITIVE grounded system which is what 99.9% of all 6 volt systems are, the way you described the hook up would be absolutely correct. Just remember, no matter what the ground polarity of the system is, the red + charger lead goes to the positive terminal of the battery or cable and the black - lead goes to the negitive battery terminal post or lead.

Mark,
Thank you. It is a Positive Ground system. My error in typing.
Thanks

It's NOT brain surgery.

The battery posts are marked (+) and (-) on the battery top.

The charger leads are red and black.

Connect the RED charger lead to the (+) post on the battery.

Connect the BLACK charger lead to the (-) post on the battery.

Don't obsess over it any further!
