The one I looked up in my post I just punched in 85' FJ60...

You probably got the freeze plug out, drained everything and stuck it in there only to find it was too small...
No problem at all. I looked at it close first and realized that I knew it might not be the right size. It was well worth the shot. The little magnetic one I picked up worked like a charm though. Jumped in this morning and even had some heat in about 5 minutes. Good thing it doesn't get that cold here in Denver too often.

Cool, glad you didn't get it all taken apart...

-18 when I started mine this morning. Started, then stalled. Then started and good for the drive to drop kids at school. I'm amazed how few kids had hats on.

Well my old battery gave up the ghost. Got 2 good cranks out of it before it crapped out.

Picked up the Deka clone from Checker.

Good to be running again.

The re-badged Deka from O'reilly is $139.00 (plus $12.00 core).

When i called Hensley today the Deka 9A34M (marine/rv intimidator) is $141.00 ...
This works better for my FJ40's dual battery setup , as the Dual terminals are on top closer to the center of the battery than the regular 9A78DT dual terminal (the re-badged Deka from O'reilly). The hold down on this fj40 is angle iron around the outside of the batteries, so the closer to the middle the terminals, the better.....

The catch is they will not be in stock until next week

In the FZJ80 i have been real happy with the Sears PM1 Group 31 Platinum DieHard Marine Battery... as indicated earlier it is a tight squeeze, and i had to fab up my own hold down, but the 1150 CCA is awsome!!

I have dual Dekas they work pretty good. There is a pic of it in this thread: http://www.risingsun4x4club.org/foru...p?t=260&page=7

My 71 FJ40 has been starting right up all week. Granted, she's garaged at night so morning starts don't count, but after being parked outdoors all day at work the past couple days in VERY subzero up here in Conifer, no problems cranking or catching.

FWIW, the Optima red top that's in there right now is 10 years old and shows no signs of wearing out. Just sayin'

Yeah the yellow top that starts my 60 every time is 11 years old now. I think they don't make them like they used to.

My first Red Top lasted 10 years, including being used for occasional winching... The second lasted 8 years, and was still going strong when i gave it away to a friend (got a new one). The new one only lasted 3 years and died.... When they moved the manufacturing off shore, quality seems to have followed....
