We got the bus home last weekend. We'll be starting a proper thread with tons of pictures later today/tomorrow, but have a quick question we were hoping one of you guys could help with.
So the bus ended up being in amazing condition, and the starting problem boiled down to a missing starter bolt that I finally found the proper size replacement to and batteries that were allowed to fully discharge. We got the batteries up and running for the trip home, and the mechanic thought they may come back to life, but if I leave them sit over a couple days they die.
Before we go out and buy batteries, do you guys have any recommendations? Also, I can't find specifics regarding the ideal specs. I thought someone had mentioned them in this thread but I guess not. The owners manual doesn't give specs, and the fordparts website indicates I only need 1 battery with 650 cca (I'd like to see them try to start this engine with that hahaha!)
