Anyone know where I can buy a 6 volt dry cell, that's the same size as the wet cell, about 35 years ago I ran one in my '48 Pan, it was maintenance free and lasted over 10 years, Was wondering if they still sell them

Had very good luck with this one. It will also fit in a carved out wet cell box. Forum member "erdos" on caimag.com also sells the complete unit.

WHITEY---2yrs. ago AUTOZONE started carrying Absorbed Glass matt, Batteries!----I know they have 12-VOLT ones,--But I would check into it & see if 6-volts are available. I am on my second year using a -(AGM)-type battery.Its 12-Volts & it can be mounted upsidedown if need be!--Mine is sideways with the NEG. down!. It has 320cca, for Electric-start bikes. Also they take ALOT of abuse!--Banging around, Hi-TEMPATURE!--Wont affect its performance!--Cost was $99, But there are other AGM batteries that cost $49 to $69 & they would of fit in my oiltank no problem!-(Mine is on its side).---GOOD-LUCK----RICHIE 8)

Richie,

Since I am going to the US on Friday, do you happen to have a part number on that battery so I can check the local parts store ?

And, Mr Big, without going over the website's entire listing.........Do you know if they got one of them in 12 Volt, for my WLA??

Thanks to you both.

George

George, to my knowledge Eagle Picher does not have a 12 v version that will fit the HD box. I think they're are other brands that might.....
