Lead acid battery dimensions.

Anyone has a PDF or link with dimensions for a 45 to 65Ah lead acid battery?

I'm mostly concerned on the lower bit where the battery is secured to the car, but don't have one on hand.

Thanks.

Just looking at dimensions isn't going to get the right battery, as post placement also matters. You need to look up the appropriate battery group for your car, e.g. here: Making a Car Battery Selection | Battery Basics | Autobatteries.com Should work for almost anything that isn't a real antique...

For my purpose anything should do really, other than Japanese or custom batteries. I need to design a box that fits the vehicle battery holder to secure some LiFePO4 and capacitors in the same way the original battery is secured. As to terminals and height, I can change them as needed on the cad file.
