They sit up against the firewall on the passengers side. The Carbon Cannister needs to be moved, ours is fitted right at the front, near the bash plate, near the swaybar. Just bolted the bracket in where some holes were perfectly set, and extended the hoses.

Piranha make a very sturdy battery tray that is around the $100 mark, and Redarc make an excellent smart solenoid, again around the $100 mark.

whilst on the subject of battery placement, where do you fit a 3rd battery in a 100 series Turbo Diesel Sahara. The Sahara already has 2 bateries as standard and I have been told that they cannot be isolated. What can you do for an auxilary battery.
Any suggestions / advise would be appreciated
Cheers

Had a 2001 NM Pajero and put a 2nd sealed battery in the rear seatwell with the Pirahana isolator under the passenger seat and the cable running through the firewall grommet and under the mats. When I bought the TD100 I just transplanted the setup with the third battery down the back. I have a fused 300W inverter for charging camera and phone and 3 fused 16amp sockets for the Fridge, Fluro etc.

The Redarc is great for your mates application and I also use the odd Piranha battery tray if I don't have one in stock to suit.

Piranha part number Btmpo suites up to 1990 and Btmpn suites 1991 onwards LWB only.

He may also want to look at a 12v Power Pack if he wants an easy solution.

Opp. Lock have one similar to mine. Just a matter of choice.

Regards Derek.
