    Just got done moving, and used the /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif to haul the trailer back and forth from lakewood to southern aurora. Left the key on in the ign position and batt died. How many CCA does it take to turn over a 350tbi, bought a jump pack w/ 300 cca and it barely click's the starter. The battery is less than 3 weeks old. Bad ground? /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif

    It takes about 150 amps to turn a gas V8 starter motor, give or take.
