Thanks Tom, That's kind what I'm doing. I have 6 batteries cut apart now. A Powersonic, a 12 V Jap battery, a Wisco, a Ind Bat Co, and 2 auto. I think I'll get one of those tractor 12 V batteries, they come up to crazy CCA's, must be real good. And then cut the plates to fit.
It's just a shame that for 70 friggin years there wasn't a battery problem. No other vehicle has a battery problem and here in 2010 we can't buy a good battery? We can buy copper head gaskets, forged pistons, 12V generators and we can't get a battery??????? We should not have to do this disgusting, polluting crap.
I'm also on everyone at Tedd's to straighten this out.
