Cub Cadet Lawn Tractor Won't Hold Charge?

I have a 1963 IH Cub Cadet original lawn tractor and I just recently replaced all the wires and the 12 volt battery. I don't use it that much, but when I want to go and start it, it won't even turn over the engine once. I have to put a car charger on it and wait like 5 minutes and then it turns over just fine. But if I take it off the charger and try to start it it just dies really quickly.

You have to check all the wires running from and to the battery to make sure they are good.

well I did replace them all but I can use a continuity tester on them and look at a wiring diagram. But could the battery just be shot?
