Re: Operation Battery Relocation

Before I bought my 1963 Falcon wagon I drove a 1962 Ranchero 302Ci-C4 for about 10 years.
I put the battery behind the seat on the passenger side when I installed the 302.
I don't know why but maybe due to the lack of heat from the engine or whatever that battery lasted for about 8 years!
