Are you are talking about a dual terminal battery? This battery can be used in a side mount or top mount configuration whichever applies.

My f 150 pickup won't start have replaced battery and starter still wont turn over will start when jumped?

You replaced the battery, is it good?? You really haven't given sufficient info. Check the Battery, Cables, Solenoid, Starter. The way I read this is that you put in a new battery and the truck's engine will not turn over when you turn the key. When you jump the truck, it turns over, starts, and runs. Are you jumping from positive to positive and negative to negative on the batteries OR are you going battery post negative on the vehicle giving the jump to a frame, engine bracket, or body metal point on your F150? If you are going positive to positive/negative to negative on the batteries, then I suspect your new battery. If you are hooking the negative jumper up to a ground other than the negative post on your battery, then I would suspect a bad negative cable. Speaking of cables, did you clean any corrosion off of the terminals when you replaced the battery? Corrosion does funny things. If in doubt, replace the battery cables.

To change the battery in a Ford (2005) F150 pickup truck - one needs to open the hood and identify where the battery is. It should be on the passenger side, right next to the chassi. You need to disconnect the positive and negative leads and unscrew the bolts holding the battery. You then can replace the battery using the same setup.

Using a 5/16" 6 point box wrench or socket remove the negative battery cable first then the positive cable. Using a 13mm socket with a 10" extension remove the battery hold down bolt and remove clamp wedge. Remove the battery, clean up battery tray and cable ends with water and baking soda and wire brush. Install new battery, reinstall battery clamp and bolt. Attach positive battery cable first then negative cable. You will need to reset clock and radio settings.
