Default Vidor CN429. Battery Connections.

Hello.

I have just found this forum whilst doing a search on Vidor L5040 batteries. I have just bought a CN429 in good condition and I want to power it up. I can't find any information on the LT connector. It has two wires: brown and yellow with the yellow going to the larger terminal. I am assuming that the yellow wire is positive.

Can anyone confirm this for me?

Thanks,

Steve Smith.

Also remember--the larger of the two pins will be positive.

A good tip as i recently discovered is to give the valve pins a good clean, likewise the holders.
Good luck with it.
Cheers
