New battery


Recommended Posts

If it fits it will be fine. 

There are pretty much only 3 things regarding batteries. 


 CCA (cold cranking amps)


As long as the voltage is right (nominally 12v ) then it will fry nothing. If the cca is too low then it can struggle to turn the engine over - but tbh with petrol classics it’s not that relevant as they don’t need much to turn over.

Capacity is again almost irrelevant as that is just the ability to have some storage for multiple starts etc. And largely governed by the physical size of the thing.

The blue one would be the better fit, -ve to the earth strap, so battery posts nearest the bulk head. The red one would have to be mounted the other way round posts at the front, problem then is the battery clamp shorting the posts.
