150 mile drive home was good fun, gave it the beans for the first time through the Handheld tunnel
And I thought FE54 was the forum bitch....

Hindhead tunnel?

It will fit but will be more likely to run too low on juice to start the car.

check the cold cranking amps (CCA) and ampere hour (AH) capacities and if they are the same there is no reason why they shouldn't work

Tried the new battery, but it's not starting, the fan kicks in straight away but no turnover? Any ideas?

Sounds like the battery is flat, strange. Has it been sitting long, usually when the fans come on it signifies a low battery. Have you tried charging it up then fitting it? What's the ratings on it, I think 180's are 160ah???

Sounds like a dud battery. It has been known for new batteries to have a few dead cells. If it was new and unused it can easily be flat and not recover.
