New Batteries/Greensaver SP68
- View SourceInstalled a set of new Greensaver SP68 batteries in my 97 Force
yesterday. A matched set, fresh from the factory. Eric delivered them
and helped with the lifting of the lead. Thanks again.
Fit was excellent and it is a nice battery to install. Nice folding
handles and no need to trim off moldings to make it fit. It is a bit
shorter than a group 27 but the other dimensions are nearly the same.
5 fit in front, in theory you could rearrange things in the rear and
get ten in there but the center channel would be gone.
I'm following Solectria manual battery break-in recommendation and so
far I have only driven it on a short trip. Seeing a pack voltage in
the 170's again was "sweet."
Will post some more when I have some more experience with them. Will
put a picture or 2 in the photos.
PS Those used AGMs that I put in in Dec turned out to have 2 different
age groups and the older ones couldn't make it past about 20AHs after
a couple of months use in the Force.
