I have a World-War-II era book called "Accumulator
Charging", which goes into some detail on lead-acid
batteries. I expect it'll say what to do, but it may also
assume that you're willing and able to dismantle the
battery, fix it and then reassemble -- in the case of a 12V
battery, repeat for all six cells!

I'll dig out the book and take a look -- I won't be able to
supply an ISBN, though, because it's too old for that sort
of thing!
