What has been the experiences using reproduction Autolite batteries? Are they reliable, do they blow up? Are they short lived? Do they spray acid out the vents in the caps? I understand there are two major suppliers. One better than the other? Thinking of getting one and thought I'd ask.

Hi c4az63c,
I bought three of those turkeys for my 65 66 mustangs and I wouldn't buy another one. You are right--they tend to vent acid in hot weather when your system is charging, two of them didn't last six months. They have the fake top you can buy. It fits on the flat top batteries and you cant tell it from the real MaCoy. This is my experience with the autolite.
