How did you determine the "battery is dead"? Are you positive it is not a corroded connection or a bad cable? Start with the easy things! If you have a meter, measure that battery and the connections. If you do not have a meter, remove the cables from both battery terminals and make sure they are clean. It was running when it went in there. Find the problem before you start overhauling it.
