Battery Case

Postby Mick D » Mon Jun 24, 2019 4:35 pm

Hi

I need to source a repro battery for my current restoration, the original battery would have been a Lucas PU7E/9. I have been searching the net and it appears there are good and bad available.
I do very little driving at night so am happy to stay with 6V incandescent filaments but I think I'd like to get a repro battery case with a modern battery installed inside.

Does anyone have any advice as to where to spend my money? - Ideally I want it to look correct and be functional, (I've heard bad things regarding rubber cases distorting and fibre glass one being badly moulded).

Regards Mick

I have been using the rubber casing supplied by the club on two bikes for around five years with a modern
dry battery also supplied by the club the only mod I have done is two drill five 3/16 holes in the base this
allows the battery to slide into the with ease and for easy removal. As long as they are not over tightend
they dont distort

However there is always a chance they will fall off when the retaining bolt undoes! I now have an additional strap to make sure the battery stays put if I loose the retaining bolt again :headbang:

Having lost my battery when out on a ride a few months ago because of this I made a mod to the toggle screw in the form of a small diameter hole.
The replacement is now wire locked in place ....
