Max and others, many thanks for the group ID. My local NAPA had a 26R on the
shelf, which was great, the reversed posts were exactly right for my
positive ground car. Had to do the hacksaw surgery Max mentioned, but
otherwise went right in. In the process, the sole remaining press-on Lucas
cable end was sacrificed in the name of getting a decent connection, sadly.
(For 43 years old the cable end was in very good condition.)
