Modern 51R batteries fit early models without modifications and a lot cheaper.

I can get EM batteries locally (Ashland, KY) for around the same price.

The vendor said that a portable generator used on strip mines requires two of them, so that's why they're in stock.

I asked late last fall (Nov?) at the local chevy dealer and they said they could get me a delco for 76.00 if I recall correctly and the core wasn't an issue.

That is how I got mime? I asked my regular mechanic if he could find me one and sure enough he did. Only issue isnthe Delco is on the side facing out and you can't tell it is a Delco. sad smiley
