Re: replacing 8d starting batteries

Could you post the actual size and amp hour rating of your batteries? Thanks
I too share your interest Ol Trunt. I was also to the understanding that most AGM batterys have a low draw rating, and may be damaged by charging with a alternator. I didn't comment on that because I figured by now maybe they make AGM starting battery's.
