Yes it is positive ground. You would just hook positive to positive and negative to negative. There's not really a backwards.

Thanks, 1031D. I guess the battery I have is just junk, as I had it on a trickle charger for 24hrs and it shows no sign of taking a charge. Battery looks new, One more question. Will it hurt a 6 volt battery to charge it with 12 volts-low amps to try to get it recharge?

Iypically charging a 6v battery with a 12v charger won't hurt but it kind of matters how low is low on your voltage selector. You could possibility 'boil over' your battery if you left it on there long enough. I would try it and see what happens after a little bit and keep an eye on the amp gauge.
