View Full Version : Side post to top post battery conversion

OK y'all.

Looking to start working on my GA again.. One thing is doing a side post to top post battery conversion since the spacing between the supercharger and the posts on my battery is mere inches...

I know I would need to lengthen the cables and I can get adapters for the side posts.

Something like these would probably work

Then the BIG question would be hood clearance....

Anyone know what it is by chance???? lol lol

How hard is it to lengthen the cables?

im running a Optima Red Top battery and it has top post no clearance issue... my main cables are still hooked to the side, but my amp wire is on the top

thanks CF wrapped engine cover.

and pretty sure the ground can stay mounted on the side. pos cable may have enough play to reach up top. just gotta play around and see. all else run to your local FLAPS and just buy a longer cable and replace the whole thing....
