12 Volt Battery Size

Postby ricky racer » Sun Oct 20, 2019 9:02 pm

I'm in the process of rebuilding another Cub. This one has been converted to 12 volts. I need a battery because it currently has none. What size 12 volt battery would fit in the battery bow?

Walmart has them for under $50.
I’ve got a couple I’ve had for 4+ years going strong so inexpensive doesn’t necessarily mean cheap.

+1 0n that. I've used them in both cubs and SA's, Ive even had one that had issues of killing the battery and had to return it. Wally world checked it and swapped it no problems. I just pull the ground after I'm done with it as its somehow grounding out in the coil (traced it w/ muti-meter) but coil works so till it dies I'm pulling the ground. If not mistaken I even had used both the 26 and 26R as grounds are reversed on them and I wanted one set up reversed to hook up wires differently as that unit uses a sprayer and I wanted to rout the wires for remote switch for it and needed the battery to be reversed. Just need slightly longer wire to starter.
