Re: Battery CCA\'s?

[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/tongue.gif[/img] Let's see now.....taking what I have just learned from LEVE's post, it looks like the deep cycle marine battery is not proper for a direct-start application. You would use a battery like a deep cycle marine battery as an auxillary battery to run lights and stuff while parked, and when you got ready to go, you would crank up with a different battery which had been isolated from the lights and stuff while parked, and upon start-up the oil pressure would rise, closing a switch which would close a solenoid and the Deep Cycle MArine Battery would be patched into the system to recharge while you drove home. That is the usual application for DSMBs, and a real good setup if you have stuff to run and don't want to risk running the crank battery down. My 1974 Ford pickup CAME like that because we ordered it for the old-style heavy-draw two-way radios. That pickup came with one deep cycle marine battery for the radio circuit, and one master blaster to crank the engine with.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
