Hey guys so I just made a really stupid mistake and installed a new battery backwards. This is on my other car, a 1977 Lincoln Mark V with a small block ford 400. I wasn't even able to get the terminals disconnected quickly as it got stuck when I connected the battery. So it sat sparking and smoking for about 10 seconds or so.
What have I blown and what do I need to replace? I'm assuming fusible link, starter solenoid, coil, alternator, and fuses? Do I need to replace the main engine wiring harness as well? What about all my gauges and dash electronics? Door/window locks?
Very pissed at myself right now.
The wiring was all stock as far as I know.
