1922 Maxwell Battery question


Recommended Posts

I have a 1922 Maxwell Touring car that is on a 6 volt system. Is there a certain 6 volt battery that i need to get? like crank volts, etc?

Any help would be appreciated. there was no battery in there to compare with.

Thanks,

James

Unlike 12 volt batteries, stores usually only sell one 6 volt car battery.

Measure the space for the battery just to make sure the new battery is not too large.

I have the best luck using a battery from "TRACTOR SUPPLY", get one for a tractor.

Make sure you get 6 volt battery cables, 12 volt cables are too small.

A lot of guys like the Optima type battery, the one with 3 round cells. They seem to have more oomph and last longer. And they are small and fit into most battery compartments. Some even fit them inside an old battery case for an original appearance.
