Yeppers on that. They seem to be fine. I used a multimeter to check continuity.

Terminal ends are maxed out, ragged, corroded, ugly, loose, and frankly insulting (sounds like my 1st wife) to the new battery.
Thus, I have decided that this occasion warrants new terminal ends.
My wife has left for Napa to pick them up. (God, I hope these type are in stock)
I do not want to strip off the factory spade clips on the ends. Lalalalalalala.....
*twiddling thumbs*

To be continued......
And I remember when gas was less than a dollar....
