AndyGJ Posted December 10, 2013 Report Share Posted December 10, 2013 Well, after 6 years of ownership, I finally had to replace my original factory Ford battery. I took my SGT to LD's Performance to get my SPP Watts Link installed, fluids changed, and a Dyno Tune. I told Larry Day that I thought the battery may be weak...that was all I had to say, and there it went right before me. Larry ordered an Optima Red Top battery for me and said he would get it installed. I checked on the status this morning, and he said all is just about done, but the battery is too close to the hood. He said that he had to order a different battery tray that would allow the battery to sit lower that the factory tray and not hit the hood. Has anyone else experienced this issue? I was under the impression from reading other battery posts (no pun intended) that there has not been a clearance issue with the hood, but those could be GT500 owners and the larger S/C domed hoods have better spacing for the Optima Red batteries with the post on top versus the Motorcraft battery with the posts on the side. Any thoughts or advise? Thanks, Andy. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
