    I have moved your post to its own thread. This will give your question the visibility and attention that it deserves.

    In the future, we request that you launch your own threads rather than append your question to the end of an existing thread.

    It depends upon how badly it's discharged.

    If it's completely discharged, I would charge it at a rate of 14A for 10 hours, and then establish a proper float charge voltage. Float charge voltage is dependent upon temperature and battery construction.
