I am of the opinion that 2 x 6V's connected together to make 12V, will have more capacity than the average pair of group 27's. Its all about the sheer mass of the 6V's.
Each one is about 70lb...

Here are 2 x 6V's against the original group 27.

I got looking at the chassis battery the previous owner had out in. It should work but I think it seems small for the area. I get the impression that he did the smallest he could get away with. Does anyone have a spec on the biggest chassis battery I can safely fit in there?

Thanks

Mine are group 27's. Group 31's would be great but without going out and measuring I don't think they will fit without some modifications.


" New question. My light indicator for the igniters is inop. What can I do?"

I assume by igniters you are talking about your "glow plugs"? My light doesn't work either but you can hear the relay "click" When you hit the switch. That being said, I never use mine. The engine fires right up and I have had it down into the high 20's and it started right up after sitting overnight.


"Finally( for this post) My wife has forcefully pointed out that our call sign is inaccurate. It should be Mobilboars. She is a former teacher,don't you know. Is there a simple way I can correct this glarying oversight on my part to ensure Domestic bliss?"

For this PM a moderator, they may be able to restore your "Domestic Bliss."

The 6 volt battery link I sent him had the batties at 17" deep and 125lbs each. I wouldn't suggest putting four of them in a pullout battery box......it might tip the whole rig over onto your foot.
