Re: (ET) Re: Dead on the road: IT"S ALIVE!!!
Another option if the battery has a lot of life left in it: a good
battery dealer can melt on new terminals.
I had a similiar problem with a used battery that I got because someone
had busted the connector off a terminal. I put in a helicoil so the bolt
had good threads to hold onto. Still maybe not a permanent solution, but
I hate too see an otherwise good battery 'put down'.

*however* Your solution of tapping the lead with a bolt is not going
to work over the long term. Lead is soft, and what will happen is the
bolt will loosen, causing resistance, causing warm bolt, causing
melted lead, repeat. Vibrations will also cause the bolt to work
loose, causing problems.
