battery for mk2 Sabre

Post by Supersub » Mon Feb 11, 2019 9:02 pm

The battery for the 1.4 K series Sabre I have just bought is located in the boot in the additional storage space under the ply access board. Previous SST and Sabres I have had had it fitted under the bonnet. Is this the correct fitment point or is this a mod? Also can anyone recommend a replacement (this one is shot) preferably one with a bit more 'oomph' in it please.

Many thanks

Mike

K series is in the boot.

Only one I could find at a reasonable price that fits the box was a Japanese one for which you need post adaptors. Give me a couple of mins and I’ll tell you the type number.

Post adaptors were a couple of quid from memory.

Hi
Just bought one of these for my SST Ti, the last one has been on for 14 years, not bad,
eBay ref no 321290192128, there is also a cheaper one, a Lucas Classic, but has less power,
Hope this helps
Regards
Alan

SST battery is in the front Alan, Sabre K is in the boot. However, I’m pretty sure I cut the mounting lugs from an SS1 063 to fit in a Sabre K? Measure first :D

Thanks again Phil. Keep up the good work fellas. All this time and effort on my behalf. Good job you lot don't get paid by the hour. Would cost me a fortune. This is what makes this club such a good one to be in.

Sorry Jim,
Mist the fact that the battery is in the boot, but its a good fit for the SST, just misses the bonnet
