Battery
« on: August 29, 2017 - 12:26:30 pm »
Looking to buy a Group 27 Red Top Battery.
I have owned 3 or 4 of them back in the 90's. Was never happy with their life. I got 2 or 3 years out of them. At that time they were  159.00 a pop. Are they any better now and how much are they running and any suggestions on where to purchase one.
Thanks

A lot of people cut the bottom out of them and gut the case.  Then, they install a smaller battery inside.  There are pictures online if you look for them.  You'll never have to replace that red top again.

Actually, I think I read where some of them come that way already. Cut the bottom out and see.  :2cents:

the newer repro batteries are maintenance free (AGM, no acid or water required).
I bought my last battery 8 years ago from Turbo Start, never had problems with it.

I too have the Turbostart agm purchased in 2010, working great.  I use the Battery Tender when its not being driven.  I hear other owners love Antique battery or Restoration battery, but one of them require a proprietary batt charger.
