Hi Jim,

Thanks, I would like a retainer and I’ll send a PM, don’t have your email. The tray in the pic is in a car “in waiting”. I have the tray in my convert blasted and coated with POR15, they said it holds up to battery acid. Both trays are in good shape.

Couple of general information questions here for everyone-
-I bought a group 26R battery that fits pretty good but does not have any bottom lugs. I am familiar with this type of mounting in vintage chevys but the battery always has a formed lug on it for the retainer to hold down. Does this retainer work without a lug on the battery or do I need a battery with a lug?

If so what do I buy?

Is that the 63 Service manual with those pics? We have the 61 service book, 62 supplement, and the Jetfire supplement but I don’t recognize that section. If so gotta get a 63.

Thanks again
