I went with the stock replacement motorcraft. Fits 100% like the original and looks DAMN close as well. If you remove the red sticker you could barely tell a difference.DHG2496 said:Mine still has the original...but it's dead..what should I replace it with? I was looking at an Optima. Any feedback is appreciated!
yup, this is what i did tooBullitt Bliss said:The original battery in DHG #01794 was dead last week and I just replaced it last weekend with a new Motocraft BXT-59 battery from my friendly local Ford dealer. The new battery does not have the little window to see the "charge" indicator.
By the way, I also had to replace the battery insulator wrap and the battery clamp hold-down bolt. The insulator wrap was all weathered and the hold-down bolt was rotted away. I got those from Performance Parts Inc. on-line.
