    the other one listed is heavy duty and does state 600A continous, 2500A cranking
    https://www.gaelforcemarine.co.uk/en...ff/m-3194.aspx

    what sort of amps am i looking at for cranking? sorry i don't have a clue...

    many thanks
    The one in the first link is rated at 275 amps continuous (for 1 hour) and a cranking current of 1250 amps ( for 10secs) That spec will exceed your requirements by a mile. Your cranking current is probably less than 275 amps

    See the BEP catalog for all the detail http://www.delzer.com/powerproducts/BEP_CAT_003/#18

    The link i gave in post #2 is for the 701 switch, which is the 275a switch from Gael Force. This is the correct switch for your engine, this switch will almost certainly exceed the rating of your battery cables, never mind the starting current

    I've just fitted two of these they are very robust. Used on 3YM30 and 110Ah batteries. I think I bought from 12volt planet.
