Great, we don't mind a mystery with a simple solution.  :001:

I can only think you touched something earthed with the positive battery feed while fitting it.

That's entirely possible as I am (ahem) an amateur mechanic!!!

New fuse fitted and battery in, fired up straightaway.

Can't thank you enough for all your tips + assistance  :152: :152: :152: :152: :152: :152: :152:

Nice one windy^^^

blackgoff, remember for next time you change a battery, Neg-lead off first, and on last.


Happy ending  :031: go have a beer.
