    If you really take some time, you'll realise that Tayna batteries are a seller and as such they stock a number of batteries matching exactly the C31-1000 specification with a number of different manufacturer's branding for an equal number of different prices.

    It's all a bit academic now I s'pose.
    I take it you remembered to remove the little breather plug on the side?

    Tayna do a couple for the TD5 but do a measurement first and also check the posts position. I got a 100Ah battery from them in the winter of '12 and it's still kicking over like new even with the recent cold nights . This is the link for it.....
    https://www.tayna.co.uk/car-batteries/enduroline/019/ The labels have been altered to protect the innocent but the cells remain the same. 4 year warranty . This'll be year 8 with mine and for less than a ton I ain't complanin'

    I have no connection or sponsorship from Tayna in any way.

    that's quite obvious as long a you promote a weaker than required battery for a Td5 :confused:

    maybe but this fact doesnt mean that the battery is recommended or the best for a Td5 as long as it's weaker than the factory fitted one...let's hope that the winter will be "friendly" there or the final conclusion will arise :rolleyes:
