The mini battery gave up . I knew it was a matter of time so here we go. The Japanese battery has very small posts so the original cables canít be used to clamp directly onto an American style that I have seen. So off to Wally to see what they have. Some folks use motorcycle or lawn mower batteries and cut cables to attach to side post style applications. I found an exact size battery to fit with the original hold downs and I found some terminal clamps that should convert to the larger posts. 

Suzuki Carry, DD51T, Japanese mini truck, battery swap.


Maybe this will draw some new people to site.

If you canít fix it with a hammer, it must be electrical.

Mini truck battery.

So I snapped the wing nut clamp off the new clamps and snapped the copper straps off just leaving one hole to run clamp bolt thru.

The post are in the rear of the mounting box now and I am a little concerned the battery could move some and short out. So if you see a future pic of a burnt mini carcass you will know what happened.

That's really clever.
People who confuse etymology and entomology bug me in ways I canít put into words.

It would be tough to cut those parts out with an exacto knife.
