Re: Taylor Enclosed Battery Box Mounting
Also, NHRA says if battery in trunk, trunk has to be sealed from pass compartment.
Rear seat acceptable, if no seat, then alum sheet metal, 0.030 thick, I believe, and pop rivet onto rear frame.
You also have to seal the wheel house area from trunk side.
Battery cable can be ran through door sill on pass side. Fits real nice.
Either bulkhead fitting through firewall or grommet for cable through to starter.
I used 4/0 welding cable and soldered copper terminals onto ends.
By NHRA rules, if battery in trunk, cutoff switch on positive cable is a must.
Also, you should run alternator sense wire to isolated terminal of cutoff switch so alt can charge battery. Or, if mech regulated, crank up voltage at regulator.
Ground cable should be attached to engine and unibody.
Food for thought.
