randyp Posted November 13, 2011 Share Posted November 13, 2011 Batteries were old and worn out on 86 r-model, sometimes it would start and sometimes not. It finally got to where i couldnt even boost it. i got tired of airing tanks up and pulling or parking on hills so went battery shopping. It has 2 six volt batteries on each side. Nobody round this dry isolated hell hole stocks 6 volts, they wanted to order them, werent sure when theyd get them, and price was more than 12 volts. Three,,,yes,,,Threee different truck mechanics told me i couldnt just put one 12 volt on each side, said not enough amps. Well,,,,bullshit,,,I put one 1000 cranking amp 12 volt battery on each side, eliminating extra battery cables to maintain in process, and sumbitch spins over like button on shit house door! We have already had 2 frosty mornings and it cranked both times, wasnt even daylight yet. I dont give a rats ass bout no silly ass 6 volt battery. Thas my 2 cents. Im also shamed 2 of those truck mechanics are "kin" to me. LOL randyp Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
