Autolite Battery Cover
#1
I've always liked the Autolite battery, but no way going to spend the bucks to get one.

Will an Autolite cover fit a 73 302?

If so, what type battery number (ie: 24F) should I get?

Thanks

Sure it fits, use manufacturer information to determine what battery to use. 73's got Motorcraft batteries from the factory.

The cheaper covers tend to warp a little from the tie down and heat. Battery post holes may also be a little off because of who made the battery. I seen some of the better covers where the cell caps unscrew and the red lettering is the shade.

Its a battery that doesnt have any caps on top so the autolite cover will fit. If the battery isnt flat, the posts will be too short sticking thru the cover.
