Optimum Yellow 

test fitting
hooked up ready to run

Well today I started tackling the no charging battery that came with Sarge, I did muti-meter checks and that battery only put out 10.5 volts which won't turn over a 302 V8. So I decided to go big I got Sarge a Yellow top Optima battery and boy it fired right up 12.7 volts and even after sitting for hours no trickle down, so lets hope I don't need to do alternator or anything else. Spent a bit more then I really wanted to for battery but if that's what it takes to run its well worth it.
