What kind of batteries are in it currently? As below there you posted a link for 6volts batteries.  So they would be connected in series as that's a 12 volt system I believe. Years ago it was quite common for equipment to run 2 or four 6 volt batteries in series so you would have more cranking power. If this is the case it would not be too difficult to make it work with one 12 volt battery.

A year later I have given up trying to convert two batteries to one, and am looking up information for two batteries. I just found this thread and realized my response to Haymaker came off as smart aleck so I need to apologize. Better late than never. I think the reason for my response was that I was aggravated the time trying to find the answer to my question. I know that wouldnt go well in the real world if someone was trying to help me, so forgive me


This title is a typographical error. It should say how do I convert two batteries to one.

The text however says it right the question is how do I convert it from using two batteries to one.

It should be obvious why I want one I would think. So I can use one battery instead of two right now I have no batteries instead of spending three hundred bucks I'd rather spend half that and have one battery and have a simple or setup.

And a lot of people have made that 221 conversion. So please if anyone can tell me how they did the 2 to 1 conversion I'd appreciate it

 I understood your post and I asked about what starter you have in that model.

You need to have a 12 volt starter if you want to run with one battery.  Many use a 24volt starter which requires 2 batteries connected in series for starting.

Why would you want to do this?   Also do you have a 12 volt or 24 volt starter?

Forgive me if this has been covered before but the search engine isnt working (I just searched for "battery" in posts by me and it pulled up nothing. My last thread was about batteries and it had alot of replies too)

I can't figure out how to convert my 400AN from using two batteries to one. I showed it to a friend who is a better mechanic than me and neither could he. It looks like both batteries are used for different things.

Has someone done a write up on how, or could someone explain it ?
