I used SYBS to buy my type 49 battery. With Ford Transit type battery terminals,also sold by SYBS, it fits under the original battery top.

I brought this http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Yuasa-sealed-lead-acid-Battery-12V-5Ah-Data-Safe-type-/390259286896?pt=UK_ConsumerElectronics_Batteries_SM&hash=item5add442370#ht_1144wt_754
Yesterday as a back up to keep in the boot, it's tiny, I can hold it in one hand, don't know how far it will go for though, also its very very light.

I'm not sure how well a 5ah battery will cope as the standard Sinclair Oldham battery was 36ah  :-\.

You'll have to let us know how you get on   :)

The terminals will probably melt as you apply motor lock load.
