Ok to run two different batteries, or no?
Is it okay to have two different batteries in the truck? My truck (in sig) starts a little more slowly than it should. Did it when we had warm weather too, it's not just a cold weather problem. I feel it's the starter getting weak, and I have a new one I need to install. But, I have a nearly new 850cca battery in the '87 truck in my sig. I would like to take this battery out, put it on one side of my psd, and see if that makes any difference. The batteries in it are 844 cca right now, which I know are a bare minimum.
I would like to swap in the new 850 from my '87, see if it helps, then purchase another 850 just like it in a couple weeks to match it. I can take the two batteries currently in the truck, and put them in each of the other trucks in my sig. I feel certain they would be perfectly fine in either of those trucks.
When I put my new starter in, I'm gonna also check all my connections; make sure they are tight, and make sure they aren't corroded and the wires aren't going bad at the terminal.
