Hi all, Has anyone successfully installed a car battery in a 445? I have read on some forums that this is a viable option to l&g batteries since they have a better warranty and better CCA performance. if someone has found a battery or group size that fits, please let me know. Thank you Mark

You can change it to the battery used in the 455 and 345,it is a full size battery cant remember the group #.You would also have to change out the battery cables as that battery mentioned has the top round posts and I cant say for sure if the hold down is the same.I was going to go that route on my 425 but decided to stay with the small size 430 amp battery because of cost,I found the correct replacement at autozone for $45.My 345 takes the bigger battery and it is expensive,add the cost of new cables and possibly the hold down and its $$$.The 455 needed the bigger batt for more cranking amps for the diesel and the 345 needed it for the electric clutch.
