NorthStar Battery Project, Dual Front Engine Starts

Recommended Posts

Well, I was lucky enough to pick up a sponsorship through NorthStar battery company. They seen my truck at SEMA with the Telcom batteries in the Bed and wanted to talk with me. They had no Idea I lived in their back yard. So after a few months here we are with Two of their new Blue Top G-31 AGM engine start batteries. Here are the specs for each of these batteries.

NSB G-31M

12 volts

1150 Cold Cranking Amps

1370 Marine Cranking Amps

2150 Pulse Cranking Amps

205 Minute Reserve Capacity

 

Electrical characteristics

BCI Group Number 31m

SAE Terminal configurations

Capacity - 20 Hour Rate 100Ah

Capacity - 10 Hour Rate 92Ah

Internal Resistance 2.2 m

Short Circuit Current 5000A

 

Measurements

Height w/Terminal 9.12 in

Width 6.77 in

Length w/Rib 12.91 in

Weight 77.8 lbs

 

I started today cutting and welding. The idea behind their AGM design is that the battery can be mounted in almost any way except inverted. So I decided to use that to my advantage. I'll be building a battery rack in place of the stock battery tray and will mount one there as it usually is. I Decided to put the second battery on the passenger side and will be mounted on it's side. So far i only have the passenger side backet fabbed up but the driver side will come later this week.

Started on the Driver side- I've been wanting to trash the stock battery tray for years and I now I can. Pulled it out and made the frame for the tray. I'll work on the supports tomorrow.

Been Busy but today I had some spare time to start the sheet metal around the battery boxes and engine bay. I am building these so they can easily be taken out if need be.

Put in a couple more hours of fab work today. Slowly comming along. Wish I had a Metal Brake -Would have made doing this alot easier, Instead I'm cutting out my panels using a plasma cutter, getting as close to my line as possible without burning through it and then grinding all my edges straight. This is what takes the most time. I'm also trying to keep both sides some what uniform so it's easier on the eye's.

Thanks Fellas'

Well I had a show on Sat> so I had to hurry up and knock these out. Worked on them all day Thur and Friday. Still need to make another panel to run accross the back firewall area but so far I'm really happy with the turn out. The front panel I cut out and then took it to a place that does my water jetting and had them cut out the R/T and Dakota into it. And yes My paint booth was rigged out of a E-Z up canopy, plastic drop cloths and 2 filters with the down draft one attached to a box fan. works great.

Well- I just getting started on the Firewall cover that will tie the two sides together and allow it to all flow evenly. Like the others I'm building it so that it can easily be removed if I need to do any motor work.
