Nick Carter provided two files (thank you) that were of great help.
At his request the files were posted to the Yahoo Group "File" folder
as ForceNiCdWateringSequence and SAFTBatteryWatering.
One problem, my Solectria has a replacement Zivan battery charger that
is not preprogrammed to do the overcharging sequence that is to be
conducted at water addition. (5 hours at 10A followed by 72 hours of
2 min at 10A and 30 minutes off). Mike Young (previous owner) is
going to send me the original Brusa NLG4 charger and I am going to see
if it can be repaired. Hopefully the Group Messages will provide info
on where to get it repaired. If it can't be repaired I can rig up a
plating power supply and a timer to follow the recommended sequence.
Thanks to all

memo so you probably have all there is on the subject already.
