If your Austin Ruby 747cc Petrol Battery is showing a low specific gravity, then the battery will need recharging. Naturally, you will need a 6-volt charger for these 6-Volt batteries.If you use one of the modern trickle chargers, your battery must be left charging for a 48-hour period. Your battery should then be left standing for three days before the specific gravity is read again.The cells should all read about the same results. Thereby, if one or two of the cells are lower than the others, then the battery will need replacing, or a new one could be faulty.Always fill your battery away from the house if possible. This is in case you spill any of the sulphuric acid. Battery acid is very strong and could burn skin or damage eyes if not handled carefully.
