i usually try to read threads about battery quality/manufacturers. i need a new battery for my '79 3600. there is a f4 in there now. i suspect a 4dlt is what is called for, my ops manual just says 128 ah. is interstate still the one to look for? is tsc's version equal? any thoughts appreciated, thanks.

Now days there is like 3 companies that make batteries so it pretty much makes little to no difference as to where you buy a battery other then the warranty they have. Me I get most at Wal-Mart due to cost and warranty. I just get the biggest highest CCA battery that will fit and be done with it

Get the 4DLT. Some guys try to stick taller batteries in and then wonder why the hood glows red when they close it.

local auto parts can order in a 4dlt, will get that. looked at cables, one is a number 2, can't read the other. will look into 0 or 00.

does the 4dlt have both pos and neg terminals at one end of the battery, or one one each end? will make a difference on cable length.

Ha Ha Ha... Been there, Done that...Oh wait I am still doing that! On my wife's 2N, I have a patch of old inner tube that is zip tied down and lays over the positive post and cable just to make sure nothing can contact it.
Great minds.........
