Anybody know if this Bosch will work? 24-710BAGM

Anybody?

I ended up using a NAPA 7524 which looked identical to an Interstate MT-24 only the case was already black. Fit perfectly. No modifications.

I modified my topper to fit the terminals, made the eye look real and drilled the other caps to look the part as well.. Actual battery is a O'Reilly's 24 series Super Start.

Just a couple old Camaros.

Do you have a 68 L78 Camaro? If so, message me as I'd like to add it to my registry.

I notice your car has the heater hoses coming through the cover instead of beside it like my small block.I am installing a rat motor heater core and had to buy a cover and matching core for a big block like yours .Was your car once a big block?

I don't think there is any way of knowing. I don't have any documentation that says so and I haven't read anything that tells me what to look for.

Re: Battery that works perfect with R59 delco battery cover

90% of all batteries are made by Johnson Control, from Walmart to Optima. I would guess the posts are the same location. Johnson Control is also the largest producer of Car seats including Recaro. My Walmart and Delco posts are in the same location.
