    I want to replace the diodes in my battery charger but not sure how to connect. Have # 276-11 (2) Full wave bridge rectifiers from radio shack 25 amp + 50 volts
    Need wiring diagram. the transformer puts out, but the one diode is bad. Want to bolt them on the plate and connect? Can some one tell me how to wire them in?

    If it is a standard transformer with two AC leads going to the rectifier(s) just connect the transformer leads to the ≈ symbols on the rectifier(s), polarity is not important as they are AC inputs, after that just connect the + & - of the rectifier(s) to the original output connections - you will need to observe polarity in this case.
