Sprint Battery Tie-down

PostPost by: archigator » Sat Feb 04, 2006 4:41 am

My RHD Elan Sprint has a only a rubber strap that connects to a bolt in
the bodywork on either side of the battery. I assume this was not the
stock installation for holding the battery down. Can anyone clue me in
as to what the original setup was? Thanks.

My Sprint has a small fixed lip at the far end of the tray which the bottom
lip of the battery slides underneath. at the other end it has a small
removable bracket like an upside down L with a bolt which goes throught the
top of it and screws into the floor clamping the bottom lip of the battery.
I can send you a drawing or picture if you want
