battery positioning on F1

is there any rule on how close can a battery be to the exhuast pipes. I'm looking at a 1 1/2" just above my block huggers.

There's no "rule", but I know how hot my floor and firewall gets in my Nova before I insulated and carpeted it, and there's over 2.5 inches clearance underneath. I wouldn't put it that close, call a battery shop if you're unsure.

thanks for reply

originally i was going to put the battery behind the seats where the gas tank used to be. i got looking at the original battery box and supports and put it on the passenger side of the engine(used to be on driver side). it looked like it would fit ok only it would be pretty close to the exhaust. probably will be back in the cab.
thankx
