I have a 1965 mercury comet with a 289 v8. I want to know what type of differential I have in it so I can buy a new cover for it

Here are the spec's for the 1965 mercury comet, 289 V8:

For 1965, the Comet Cyclone was powered by the V-8 with 225hp, the same engine that was put into Mustangs. And for more power, there was a special high-performance package, better known as "Hi-Po," available with the Cyclone, and it shared the 271hp V-8 which, when installed in a Mustang, was known as the "K" code car. In the Comet, the engine code is "A." When equipped with the Hi-Po package, a 1965 Cyclone came standard with: 289 four-barrel high-performance engine, four-speed Toploader transmission, nine-inch differential, performance suspension, quick-ratio steering and 8,000-rpm Rotunda tachometer. However, the following items were extra-cost mandatory options with the 271hp engine package: four-speed transmission, heavy-duty front suspension, low-profile rayon tires and 42-amp alternator, according to 1965 sales information.

Its a 9-inch differential at best. Try this link for more data:

On land rover discovery handbook, it says need group size 24 battery, why in all battery stores say I need group size 34?

The size numbers you are referring to- 24 and 34, refer to the BCI group number of the battery. These numbers define the physical dimensions of the battery case- that's it!

It has nothing to do with the CCA [cold cranking amps rating] or AH [amps per hour rating], or the battery life.

BCI stands for Battery Council International; it is a trade association of manufacturers of original equipment (OEM) and after-market auto batteries. This association is responsible for setting the standards and testing dimension and sizes of lead acid batteries.

So, to sum it all up, the BCI 24 battery has the following dimensions: its Length 10.3" (260mm); Its Width is 6.8" (175mm); and its Height 8.9" (225mm)

The BCI 34 battery has the following dimensions: Its Length is 10.3" (260mm); Its Width is 6.8" (175mm); and its height is 7.9" (200mm)

Both batteries have the positive polarity on the left hand side and are located on the top of the battery; they are for automotive use and are SAE (Society of Automotive Engineers) approved standards.

The difference between the two batteries are in their dimensional height; the BCI 24 is 8.9'' whereas the BCI 34 height is shorter at 7.9" by 1".

As long as the battery tray and the battery hold down clamps can secure the BCI 34 in place, you should have no problems.

HOWEVER, should you decide to buy the BCI 34, make sure the CCA rating is the same or more than the BCI 24; that's where it counts the most in cold weather. And of course, the reserve Capacity rating (RC).

Never compromise the aforementioned by going with lower ratings when replacing a battery to save a few bucks, because it will cost you more money in the long run when having to call for AAA services or replacing the battery again because of its short life due to energy demands that automobiles of today command as a result of all the electronic components that are used during the operation of the vehicle or the paralytic draw (slow power drain of the ECM and its components) when not in use.

What battery needed

Your existing battery will usually have some letters printed on the side ... it should say some numbers followed by AH . This is your amp hour rating and will allow you to purchase the correct battery size.

I have a yamaha 125. Can I use a car battery in it?

I kinda doubt you'd be able to find a car battery small enough!

Why not just use the right battery?

I have a Yamaha 125 bike late 80's. Can I use a car battery in it?

Almost every motor vehicle uses 12vdc Lead-Acid Batteries, The deciding factor for you will be the size of the battery. Best bet for you would be to take the old battery, or, write down all the letters and numbers on your battery. An example would be something like this; Yakamoto FW27483. And the measurements of the Length, Width & Height. You should be able to go in to any Auto Parts store and find a battery. Also, I am assuming that your battery is a small one. Hardware Stores sell "Sealed Lead Acid" batteries for use in "EXIT" signs and "Emergency Lights" that are used in most stores.
[I am using one of this type of battery in my riding mower, 3 years and it still works.]

How do i find out the transmission numbers

The 2000,2001 & I believe 2002 Lincoln LS
have a 5R55N Trans

The 2003 thru 2006 have a 5R55S Trans

Replace -- you mean rebuild yours or get a rebuilt
from Jasper,etc

NEVER install a used trans in ANYTHING

My comet s11 is not giving back up on batteries while there is no indication for batteries side.

The battery should charge as you use the ups. If they don't then its likely the battery/s have failed. Lead acid batteries do not like being left discharged for any length of time. In a motor vehicle the battery gets a bit of shaking around, but in an ups they don't. If not used and left discharged, the plates quickly sulfate up reducing their efficiency to nearly zero. Test and replace any battery that cannot support a test load. Use a battery discharge tester, a bright 12v light or a 12v soldering iron or similar load for testing your batteries.

I cant tell you off hand, but if you need a new battery, the auto parts store will be able to give you this info. Any cars battery will start the vehical, what makes battery different from one another is required cold cranking amps, and size. Your car does not need high cranking amps, depending on how cold it is were you live. Its usually size thats impotant. If you put a battery in your car that is to big, and the mounts for it cant hold it right, well, you'll wind up with a battery in your fan. Hope this helps. John...
