Thanks for telling me about the batteries. I read it the day you did post it but have not answered because it was on my phone and I hate texting And making post with my telephone.

That was a lengthy and detailed right up you did to answer my question though and I appreciate it and I'm looking forward to getting my tractor running

I use a single Group 31, 950 CCA, 12v battery in my Belarus 420A/T40A which should have the same size battery bay as your 400. A Group 31 battery is about 6-13/16" wide x 9-7/16" tall x 13" long if you want to check.

With this battery & a fast Gear Reduction Starter (about $140) my 420A will start everytime in the cold with no compression release and no hydraulic pump disengagement though I do use the compression release to get the oil flowing.

I'm all ears for Group 31 battery recommendations but I fried an Interstate 31-MHD on a good OEM starter in two years & replaced it with a cheaper, heavier AutoZone Duralast 31-950 which had an 18 month warranty vs. 12 months for the Interstate 31-MHD (in a diesel tractor)...but I just noticed AutoZone has since reduced their warranty to 12 months as well.

I have a 400 a.n. and it has the place for two batteries but I don't know what size batteries it takes. Could someone advise me on the cranking amps I need Etc? Or a link to what size I need?
