My brother gave me his Terra crusher it's e start it last ran about six years ago. His wife is a pain so don't have much help getting it going he put a dyna-sport 1500mah batt on back for estart. Since it's been 6 years batt flat. So bought what I thought was right charger butt charges for sec then say it's charged. But won't even click. Engine free any ideas on batt to buy. . I collect ww2 army trucks no clue about this other then I have seen it run any help would be awesome

unlikely you will get that battery to charge.. you could try the ole shock it with a 12v car battery . or you could build a jig to charge each cell al low amperage to condition it. but Id just buy a new 6 cell or buy 6 and build my own. do a condition charge at low amps. .01 for 18 hours or so.. discharge and then do a few normal 1/2 to 1c charge.... good luck.. get a glow plug new nitro lines .check seal on tank.check radio channels as in how servos work as in throw of each.. a few other things you could do also like check axels bushings. add a drop of oil to start motor.good luck
