Re: replacing starting battery

Shouldn't be any problem starting the engine with a 12 volt deep cycle battery. As Medsailor said many deep cycle 12 volt batteries have more cranking amps than non deep cycle 12 volt batteries. A 12 volt battery is only "deep cycle" compared to the 12 volt starting batteries anyway - not really a true deep cycle.
