!969 F-250 Starting Problem

Originally I had a problem with the battery losing its charge over aprox. a two week period. I could charge the battery and then run it for another two weeks or so. Well, I tired of that and decided to "fix" it. I can't remember my reasoning, but I decided to replace the starting motor relay. Bad idea? or Bad part? Ever since I did that the truck won't start and the battery sparks at the pos. side when the ignition is turned. I have a charging system wiring diagram, but other than that I am pretty clueless about this vehicle. Can someone give me some advice. The more details the better. Thanks.

You may have goten a bad relay, or simply connected to two little wires to the wrong terminals.

if you're getting sparks at the pos. battery cable, sounds like a loose or dirty connection or bad cable..
