My dad has a '79 Hinomoto e230 tractor that needs a new

Customer Question
My dad has a...

My dad has a '79 Hinomoto e230 tractor that needs a new battery. We can't find the manual for it to know what battery to get. Can you help?

Mechanic's Assistant: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix. The Heavy Equipment Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts.

Thanks!

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing this yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes, we have tried several battery places, but since we don't have the original or the manual we don't know what size to get. I've tried cross referencing and haven't been able to so.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the agriculture mechanic to know before I connect you?

No, just trying to find the right size battery. The last one he tried was about 1/2 inch too wide.
