Re: Battery Vent

As regards the type 44 battery vent: There is a tiny hose barb on the
removable cover atop the Exide my 5kcst runs... this connects to a clear
plastic flex tube which passes through a grommet and out to the open air
beneath the car. I'm not sure if this is the same thing Phil is referring to,
but I would think that if you are using a battery designed for this app, it
would definitely be so equipped- are you sure the batt. is correct?
