Question marine batteries

battery of choice for the 300TD?

Wal-Mart lists the 49 group battery for the Mercedes diesels but they don't carry it. I have an almost new deep cycle marine battery. Recently put it in my Jeep but I'm swapping it out for an Optima.

The 300TD I just bought have a totally dead battery. I was thinking about using the marine battery. Most diesels have 2 batteries due to the high starter load.

Do I need a special battery for the Mercedes or will any large capacity 12V battery work fine?
