L400 Dual Batteries / what can i get?

Ended up with a pair of AC Delco / 24PS - bang on fit and she started right up quick!

Tried to get another pair of world source one / 24MF but the polarities were on the wrong side.

Thanks!

Re: Sliding door window glass falling out repair

thanks for the links and replies. great idea!

I'll have to try and pry it out to see for myself to understand better

Re: help! too cold to start! need real time advice if possi

Re: help! too cold to start! need real time advice if possi

See recent post "Deli Hell" there are also very good posts on replacing the pulley , good luck . 65...
