    Battery woes...

    Anyone know the part code for a battery for a small block 57 chevy.
    I have the correct hold down clamp but my dinky battery is about 2 inches short in the tray..

    Take very much in advance chaps...

    Are you wanting a 'correct' battery, or one that will work and fit your tray? The 'correct' looking ones [tar tops] are being re-popped and are available per year/model/engine of car. Someone - cant remember who - is actually making a cover that looks like an original battery to slip over a modern unit...
    If youre just wanting a good battery that fills out your tray , I THINK - measure first - a group 34 works. Again, MEASURE and see before spending lotsa money, but I'd start with a group 34.
    just my memory and it aint always reliable any more on some minutiae..

    [side note here w/o hijacking the thread... just had this issue with my Jeep; one brand of a particular size was about a quarter inch too big for the tray whilst another of the same group number fit perfectly. Measure everything anymore...]

    Can't help on specific battery for your pride and joy but maybe one of these links will be of use.

    Personally I would get the largest one you can find that will fit the space.
