need help! This ever happen to anyone?
Hi all, while driving my 1990 Silverado, the positive battery came in contact with exhaust manifold and burned the cables and destroyed the battery. Engine died immediately ,,,, the only visual damage is the battery and cables,,,, do you think this is all I need to replace? All the fuses and other wiring appears ok. Anyone ever see or hear of this, and what was the outcome?

Not happened to me personally but have seen a few instances. Chances are very good you will be good just replacing the battery and cable. The alternator would have been maxed out briefly but you said it died immediately so I doubt it had time to over heat or get damaged but be prepared for that expense. Check the negative cable and connections too as they had to carry the full fault load as well.2000 GMC YUKON SLT, 5.3L tow pkg, G80 rear/w 3.73 gear
