159 Batttery orientation

P

Just bought a 159 at my local thrift store. Batteries are dead and I can't see any indication on body or cap for polarity. My 137 MD is having shutter problems so I thought I could use my lenses with this body. Anyone out there know how batteries go?
thanks

or in other words....
when you unscrew the cap and put the two new batteries in the holder on the cap, you should see the positive sign as you look at the cap and batteries.
