27 polarity

I have tried searching and read a lot of info on polarity on a 27. From what I have read It can go both ways. Just not good on the electrical for long periods. Which is it positive or negative ground? When I bought the truck the battery was not hooked up, so I have no clue. I would like to get this fired up and running. Also another thing I have wondered about is the head lights ect. no switches. Do these come on when it is switched to battery?

No, lights do not come one when switched to batt or mag. The key operates the batt/mag, the switch/lever part is for lights. Negative ground. I suggest you get an owners manual.

You should use the battery NEGATIVE ground.
