Electrical / Standard battery size with larger capacity
« Last post by ereeiz on March 22, 2018, 12:17:19 pm »
Hello all,

I bought a new battery last week. It's the same physical size and terminal layout as a normal Polo battery but has a bit more poke to it, a 5 year warranty and is only £45 delivered.

For reference, a std Polo battery is approx 40Ah and around 400ccA. This one is 50Ah and 550ccA.

 063XD TYPE Battery Specification is as follows

Length (Millimeters)
210
Width
175
Height
175

Voltage    12


Ampere Hours   50
Cold cranking Amps (CCA)   540
Warranty (years)   5


Here's a link in case anyone's interested;

Engine and Transmission / Re: G40 engine rebuild ?
« Last post by ereeiz on March 22, 2018, 12:11:02 pm »
You can always pull the engine out and the charger, stick it on a pallet and post it down here to someone that would do it. I just went back to work a month ago or I'd have done it for you, spent the prior 6 months off floating about looking for stuff like this to do.

I have a friend that's built a couple of his own who may be interested in the "slowly, to suit my budget rebuild". I can ask him if he'd be interested? He's by me in Pershore, Worcestershire.


If it still runs, can you get a video? Crank the settings up as high as possible too so it's easy to see / hear everything.
