075 sounds about right but make sure it fits the hole as chances are it won't. I had to base the battery on dimensions as none of the ones with the recommended power would fit. I ended up with a smaller but more powerful one. Will have a look when I get home if no one pipes up before!

Just go down to Halfrauds and get the biggest one that will fit the hole.

Would never give my hard earned to those thieves. Thing is I reckon that fitting the correct battery with correct amps must be important, dont want it to catch fire. So is the type number just the dimensions?

Well when i went and got a new battery i just walked into a shop and asked them for the battery that matched my car.... after they picked themselves up off the floor, they looked in the parts manual and found one that fit perfectly :devil:

Personally I go to the local battery supplier, who my father has known for years of being in that line of work. Failing that, most motor factors can beat the Halfords price, but it's just a case of going to a non-retail designed outfit.

An 075 is slightly more powerful than a 065. The 075 is also slightly taller too but the other dimentions are the same. If it says 065 in the book i would get an 065, you will probaly not notice any difference in starting at all.

What do you want a battery for ,you only polish that "pink" car of your's

True, but your car has been polished so much that all the lovely red paint has come off leaving it in a dull white undercoat... :crazy:

Thanks Dave, guess the amps should be 60, checked the service bible but it gives no info.

This must be the 3rd or 4th battery I've had to replace and just put the same one in each time, so I thought getting the correct one this time might be a good idea.

Agree, thats what I did Chris and once I figured that it was partly my stereo front being left on that was draining my battery, the battery has been fine.

I've always run the smallest Hawker Odyssey battery possible to take weight out. I am also running one of the lightweight denso starters which are much more efficient. I figure if it doesn't start within a reasonable time, I shouldn't be cranking that long anyway.

I like the setup enough that I'm going to try to stock a few and sell them through my websites.

The only thing that is a drawback is in the coldest weather, you may need an occasional boost.
