battery advise needed

Hi gang,

The battery in our HCS has given up. It was/is one of the Autolite replica batteries.

I looking around for a replacement, I see the same type battery is now around $300, and I don't think they can be shipped.

So I'm thinking of buying a "regular" 24F battery and using one of the fake tops that look like the old autolite battery. BUT all the batteries I see all have 2 rectangular plastic caps that come off to check the water.

So how does the fake top work with those type batteries? Looks to me that the fake top will stick up so high the cable won't fit on the posts.

I would appreciate your advise & thought's - THANKS. Dave

If confusion is a destination.....we have arrived.
