Well, I have a new battery.
Gave up on Wal-Mart. They basically wasted a bunch of my time. The
manager called Everstart (Johnson Controls) and found out that Wal-Mart
is not authorized to order any battery which they do not regularly
stock. So, SOL. They did however suggest I find an Interstate
supplier, since Johnson Controls makes Interstate. So I found a little
auto shop and they didn't have the right one, but sent me down the road
to a business called "Interstate Battery". That's all they do. It's
not the company itself, but this business has somehow gotten permission
(I assume) to use the name. It was kind of a hole in the wall. They
wanted $74.95 plus $2 for the vent adaptor. Seems the vent nipple comes
out of the middle right where the hold down bracket should be.
So, I went back to Advance Auto and bought their's. It's the one made
by GNB of Atlanta, has 670 cca and a 2-year free replacement warranty.
And Advance Auto is a large SE chain so if I have any trouble around
here, I should be able to deal with warranty issues fairly easily.
Thanks for all the input on this oh, so complicated issue.
