It's not to common for the positive battery cable end to be unable to be tightened. It's far more common for the negative cable as the post diameter is smaller.
Anyway, a little trick that works quite well, assuming that the cable end is not cracked, is to remove the cable end pinch bolt. Then file down the internal flat portions of the cable end where the bolt goes through. This will allow the cable end to then be clamped tight against the post.
I'm not exactly clear on the number of wires on the positive battery post. Is there one large cable plus two smaller cables?

An easy, cheap and (semi) permanent solution is to replace the positive cable end with a bolt on type cable end. Any autoparts store will have one; just ask for a battery cable end for a top post battery. Cut and strip all three wires and bolt it together. Then rattle can paint the connection to prevent corrosion.
