any battery you can fit in that spot will work . as for spark plugs you got to know what you have short or long reach and I assume they should be 3/4 dia

thanks Marco for that info . there is room for a good size battery I will see what my local bike shop can come up with . the old plugs in the bike were covered in paint from a over  spray that it must of had in its past life . I have cleaned the tops off  they are short reach one is a BOSCH super R6-965. the other is what must be possibly a Russian one of some age . I will try and find out what replacement NGK ones will fit . again thanks for your help :smile:  kevin

NGK BP6HS or their Denso equivalent. The Brisk N15CYC works good too (Kjøpes i Biltema). Bosch I haven't used in years 'cos' they were crap. Have they improved any in the last 15-20 years?
The devil is in the detail.

No.

In Romania we use Brisk or Sinterom (romanians sparkplugs), the best for old engines. I am thinking (now) to sell Sinterom on ebay...

I've got one of these in my BMW (6 volt) hidden in an old style case http://www.batterywe...onobloc.  BMW has a magneto so the battery is just for lights...and these are now LED.  For your Dnepr you should be able to get 2 of these in series (is it series to maintain 6 volts?  Check on that...) in a Lucas style box which should fit the holder (if Dneprs are like Urals) which should help with the coil ignition.

Parallel wiring [pos to pos and neg to neg] give six volts with more amp hours...if wired in Series...[pos to neg] 12v results at the remaining pos and neg...

when it comes to the electrics ime  a real novice . what was left of the original wireing  loom was rot so I have brought a new one and the idear is to make it as bum basic as possible just head tail lights no indicators . its a learn on the job . in other words I have been look ing at wire ing  looms on the net so I can follow . some thing fool proof . when that is sorted I can then see or try to get a spark so as to find out what will need replace ing . I would like to put a contactless ingnition  to do a way with the points . all so I had the idear of going 12 volt but some say good idear  some not stick with what you have. so a lot to think about :huh2:

Hi,Jester
  You could try making a brand new loom from scratch, it's not as difficult as you may
think, in fact it might be easier than trying to figure out what to do with some loom you buy
which may not even suit your needs or bike.
   Buy yourself a few meters of good quality wiring in as many colours as you need
(Not that many if you're keeping it simple) and connectors, I got mine from autoelectricsupplies.co.uk
You will end up with a very high quality loom and you'll know where everything is,because you put it there.
  As for the 6 volt/12 volt debate I don't know, but why don't you run it as it is until you find out whether
you can live with 6 volts or not?
   Good luck
    Jim

First...I completely agree with Wire it yourself...with a start from scratch loom.
I do lots of Wiring from scratch...Including my Dneper, and full Dressed Harleys...to Drag Bikes...
I have suggestions starting with.
2] Checking the ignition ...a great idea, easy too.
I would start there...Once the ignition is sorted...may as well wire it...then Lights, then signals then...whatever crap ya deem necessary...Horn, accessories etc.
Easy way to check ignition is to simply put a battery in it..Grounded, Then one wire to the hot side of coil, and roll it over...Troubleshoot from there... remembering to unhook the hot when not actively troubleshooting...
I have a Pretty good Dnepr wiring diagram around here someplace...12v tho.
