Default Battery

I have one of these in my 58. Somehow antique auto battery has managed to figure a way to put the new gell battery inside the old style cases. Most are famaliar with the optima line of batteries that essentially have 6 round cells. These are what they put inside your case. They never need fluid but do need to be kept charged.

The battery caps are dummies that open into the inner part of the outter case. By putting liquid into the case you short circuit the battery. A No No.

Did you not want a maint free battery when you purchased it??
If not the acid filled ones sell for about $100 less. I had one and it went bad for many reasons.

I have switched all my cars to optima/gel batteries. I got tired of cleaning up the acid splatter ect all the time causing corrosion.

Good Luck

Default She starts right up!!!

Well strapped her in to the car, hooked her all up and turned the key and BAM!!! she started right up strong as ever!!!
let it run for about 15 minutes, off and then on again no problem. However my gas gauge does not work all of a sudden??
Well turned off the quick disconnect and put on the trickle charger,, next test a few days from now to see what happens..
