Does the lube protect the terminals from corrosion?

How did you get YellowTop to fit as the terminal posts are aligned different? I have a YellowTop sitting up in an old car because I dont know how to install it as the the wires for the terminals are too short.

I didn't have any issues with the terminal posts being misaligned. Everything fit exactly like the original battery I removed from my car.

This is the battery I put in (thanks bigc for the heads up on this):
