How do you remove the battery from a 63 vette
I have lifted the expansion tank and gotten the battery on its end, but it
doesn't seem to have sufficient room to lift it out
it should lift out with a little help...pry ir grab a post with some channel locks,,,report back...there is a removable panel in the passenger side fenderwell, right near the battery. You have to jack up the car, remove the right front wheel, and unbolt the panel. THEN the battery removal and replacement is a snap. However, PLEASE use jack stands prior to crawling under the jacked up car to work on your battery.
Your suggestion inspired me to use the battery strap and I was able to get it out. Thanks for the help BTW, the new battery doesn't have a strap, will give me something to do in a few years
Use a rubber bicycle tube to slide under the strapless battery. put a long screw driver or hard wooden block to use as a handle. It may work as a strap to control it. I think Corvettes were made first and the battery was squeezed in as an after thought, OR the battery is the first thing that is added to start the build and the car is built around the battery.
