Battery test

Hi Everyone I ran some tests on my battery yesterday as I’ve had it 9 years now and was thinking of purchasing a new one.

SE6a Drive belt size

Interesting. Mines definitely the earlier one. Do you know what year they changed to the later one?

Maybe this has something to do with the fact i can't start the car when its hot. Maybe vaporisation due to incorrect carb ???
