Wonder if it will still hold charge?Hi everyone, Thanks for your responses,
The fella i bought the Galaxie from, has contacted me and told me he has come across a brand new, never used, still in the original cardboard box Autolite Battery, that he thinks he bought for the Galaxie, He told me to find the details and if it is the correct battery for the car, i can have it,
Wonder if it will still hold charge?
Autolite group Number SV-29NF
66 plate 55 amp
Either use it as suggested or 1) save it for a dedicated restoration, or 2) EVIL-BAY it.My understanding is if its dry charged and has never had electrolyte put in they have a basic indefinite shelf life. Maybe an old timers tale but thats been my understanding. Of course IF it IS NOS without the acid, I think i would put the acid in, let it set for 6-10, then trickle charge it overnight.
