new battery discharging immediately on 1950’s Massey Ferguson 50

I recently replaced the battery in my Tractor and now it immediately drains battery when I try to start it. Tried my car battery in it and it did the same thing. It was running prior to this. Hooked it up the same way old one was using new new cables. Any ideas?



Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

not quite sure what you mean by immediately drains your battery and what new cables you used. Make sure that you have the polarity right and that you get power to the starter. Let us know what happens when you connect the battery and when you try to start it.
