Battery Fitment Issue
Years ago, I replaced the OEM Fiamm battery with an Interstate equivalent. Now it's time once again to replace the battery. Trouble is, I cannot find a replacement that will fit. All of the documentation I have read so far indicates that the "Group Size" is group 34. However, all group 34 batteries are at least 7" tall. The Interstate battery currently in my car is 6" tall in the front (where the hold down bracket is placed) just like the Fiamm. Of course, my current battery is no longer made, and the replacement batteries are all group 34.
All you folks out there with Group 34 batteries in your car, how do you get them to work? I wouldn't even be able to slide a 7" battery underneath the support bracket, let alone get the hold down strap to work (???).
