Might be. I've never measured them. And I'm still stuck at work for another hour so I can't check. Maybe Mr. BMI could do that for us all.

The example shown in the manual seems like it wouldn't hold the pack in unless you tape the pack either to the strap or the chassis. In which case, why use the strap at all. Is it best to just go with the tape in your planning on using the 'brick' style?
It's best to use tape over a strap any time.

I know that is not correct for sure. I used a 1/8th bit to ream my one hub but it didn't make any difference. It is just too small.

I hate battery tape...or at least I used to. The last time I used it, was back on my Xpress touring car circa 1998. I've been told that the battery tape now, is a little better than it was back then.

Damn maybe I looked at the bit wrong. Whatever I used didn't help.
