    Hi Josh,



    Looked into this a few years back.


    I've got a 159 on my 1500, 380cca it says on it. Really spins mine over well. Do check your engine earth lead is nice and clean and the bolts are tight.


    It's a bit taller than the standard battery, but fits fine.


    Regards steve

    I'm with RH as well.very good with their price and cover but one of the main reasons I'm with them is i can add other cars to the policy and take them off when sold, couldn't do that with other brokers that i phoned including all those mentioned on here.
    regards bob.

    As always, most appreciate the feedback. I normally use the rule of 9 method, but I can see the reasoning for Pauls information. rocking the crank until the widest point is found and adjusting at that point may take a bit more fiddling but right now, with the radiator our, it is easy to fiddle.

    I would think a degree wheel would make this easier. May just put it back on and give it a try.<...

    Of coarse I ended up breaking one of the tappet cover studs trying to get it out. Does anyone know what the threads and length of these studs are suppose to be? I have had a bad time trying to measure. So I do not know whether it is metric, inch, BSW, BSF, BA. Closest I have come is 6mm x 1.0 x 45mm long. The threads are so damaged, its hard to tell.

    Should have been a machinist.
