Re: Battery

Ok, now, let's reel this in.... I just put that battery in my '92 100 last night
and left the vent hose under the seat. What's the difference? I the vent hose is
for the battery, not the car, correct? Please don't tell me I just screwed up
with the battery.... I like those 810 cranking amps.

Also, now accepting all manner of mail accusing me of outright stupidity. My car
would not start last Thursday morning; dead battery. I go and buy a new battery
and put in Friday night. Everything's fine, the car runs, the code is re-entered
into the radio. Fine. I'm disposing (properly) of my old battery about 2 hours
ago and check the fluid... ready for this... fluid level is approximately 1 inch
from the bottom. Ever see the "Min" line? It's about a half inch from the top.
My battery's last inspection... 11/14/91. Ooooo, that thing died a horrible
screaming death.

Probably gonna need a new battery for the 200qw this weekend.  Adding
water was probably a temporary fix.
Checked the International Everstart by Johnson Controls at Wal-Mart.  It
has no provision for a vent hose.  I was rather disappointed.
Any other suggestions?  I'm going to start calling around this afternoon
and see what I can find.
