That would increase that bank from 300 Ah to about 450 Ah... and maybe more if I have enough clearance to use the slightly taller 6Vs.

I also confirmed that new 6V bank would still supply enough CCAs to start that engine...

Don't actually need to do anything until that bank goes south, but we're starting our 9th season on 'em... so I've been shopping for battery boxes, too

To further complicate this DEKA calls these 31 hour batteries in some of their marketing....
