battery sourcing

PostPost by: RichC » Wed Jun 10, 2009 7:26 am

not at first as easy as I thought . i don't know if lug connectors were original , but that's what I have. I suppose many folk have switched over to post connectors by now? Is there any point other than increasing the range of available batteries?
looking through the archive I found a useful link www.lincon.co.uk who do classic car batteries... they're (quite) local to me as well.
I've just dropped them an email & hopefully the 183/15 type rated 65 should be OK.
any comments?
