would anyone be able to help me in locating a Hawker Battery for my FFR Landrover, unable to afford new, so looking to buy a decent second hand battery. They seem a little bit like gold dust, I think I have been looking in the wrong places

 

Any help greatly appreciated

If you still have the old battery, this thread is worth reading:-

I found the quote below on:-

"The Hawker UK6TNMF's dimensions have not changed since the original UK6TN spec was issued in '73/4". So a more modern battery maybe easier to find.

Sorry for you delay in getting back to everyone, got a tad busy, thank you for the posts . I have tried the pulse tech charger route, sadly to no avail, I think the batteries are truely dead, I am trying again but don't hold out much hope so still looking for replacements, if anyone has a live battery please get in contact. I am located in Sussex if that helps and more than willing to pick up within a reasonable distance.

Been recommended Varta J3's in place of the UK6TN/TNMF's - apparently have the same footprint.

 

Ok, a conventional Lead Acid Battery rather than AGM but obviously cheaper than dealing with Armasafe....

Fooled by the description "Nato type 6NT" and now I've enlarged the image I can see the 6 caps.

 

The original 6TN's were wet, 6 cap. I know of one company that (I think) still has them, dry stored but available filled.

 

Here is the original spec;
