Just to be clear there is no top bracket on my battery tray. See the excerpt from the manual that Jim sent. The top bracket type is Jetfire. My rusty tray is all one piece except for the small bottom side “Z shaped retainer” shown in the drawing.

Took a quick look on line at a group 85 and the pics showed no bottom lugs. To use the type of tray I have you must have a battery with bottom lugs. As I noted above I ended up with a 22F which is designated as a Lawn and Garden battery vs the spec’d MT-22F which is NLA.. The only difference is a short guarantee on Lawn and Garden batteries. Works good.
