Lotus Elan +2 battery
Hi. I need to buy a battery for my 1973 Elan+2S 130/5. Trouble is I haven't got the original which apparently was a "Exide 6 VTA 29 L" which means nothing to anyone today. Can someone tell me whether the terminals are on the forward side (ie next to the tank) or the after side (nearer the back of the car). As the earth (ground) strap is on the left when looking forward in the boot (trunk) that must be the negative terminal. The terminals are bolt through not the post type terminal. Judging by the bent piece of metal with a bolt through it, I guess the battery had a lip on the left end of the casing to clamp it down to the boot floor. Any other information about a suitable battery would be helpful so I can find a suitable alternative.
Many thanks John
