Default Battery Size

Does anybody know the correct battery size and dimensions for the forester TTB?

mine looks pretty small for such a big engine.

Thanks

Frazer

Hello

I've got a Halford's one. I'll have a look and get back to you in an hour or so.

There is a school of thought which says you should simply get the largest one that will fit, regardless of what the book says. In general, bigger is better in terms of energy capacity.

Hello

Just had a look at mine and it is also an HCB005. IIRC this was the heavy duty one, cost about 90.
