I bought one of those Autolite toppers to fit over 'any Group 24 battery'. Yeah, right. Most of them have the rectangular plates on top to cover the vent holes....and the positive terminal is on the wrong side. Anybody find one that will fit? And where do I get it? Been to Sears, AutoZone, NTB, Walmart, Goodyear etc....HELP, please!

K-Mart has started to sell Champion batteries in size group 24F. The F indicates reversed positioning of pos and neg posts and is what 1965-66 Mustangs take. Also Pep Boys carries a group 24F under the Pro-Start brand name. Sam's Club also sells the Champion battery. I have found all 3 here in Oklahoma. The fake Autolite top fits perfectly, there is a lip on the end of the case for the battery hold down clamp and the cell caps are recessed into the top cover of the case, they do not protrude.

I'm off to Sam's and Kmart this afternoon! No Pep Boys here, all we got is AutoZone in St. Louis. Thanks for the help.
