a lawnmower battery will not do the job.
check out Braille batteries. But get at least the 17 pound model.

Try (2) 6 volt Optima batteries wired in series. They are 3 9/16" thick. This type of battery (AGM) can be mounted in any position.

Check out Odyssey Batteries. Several of the NTBA guys use them.
