Kurt,

They are resellers, the OH company is the only show in town.  Too bad!

So, what battery do I need for my 69 SS350  Rally Sport 04C car? Is it a Y55, R59 or a T60, R89? I have seen all these used. My goal is to find the right NOS battery for the car for show purposes. The car is a survivor that scored 88% of it's total possible pointsl at the Camaro Nationals last year. I am trying to get this car to around 95%. That will be about the best it can do because of paint issues.
Could one just check the part number stamped on their original cables to determine the correct battery needed and compare to AIM? That is how I determined my car came with T-60. That high scoring on a survivor should still have the cables, right?

Last year at the Spring Mecum auction, which is held here in Indianapolis where I live, I reviewed an exceptionally nice survivor, very low mileage, Dodge Daytona "wing" car (okay, okay...not a Ď69Z Camaro which is my 1st love, but I really enjoy all muscle cars...particularly survivors).  I talked to the owner and the only non-original component under the hood was the battery.  He keeps the original in the trunk.  He purchase a very nice reproduction jell battery but I do not recall where.  I do remember that it costs about $450.

Has anyone had experience with the new repro jell batteries which are supposed to be very reliable?

Years ago, I purchased a very nice dated code Y77 side post battery for my 05A '69Z from New Castle.  As Jerry M explained, it was not 100% technically correct as it had 3/8-16 terminals on both the Pos & Neg.  This battery was the only one I could find at the time, and could not fine the correct reverse polarity repro cables to be 100% correct.  Did I recall reading (perhaps some fictional stories) that GM dealers in service after the original car sale, would replace the original Y55 side post reverse polarity battery with a Y77 and changed out the cables?

My repro battery lasted for about 3 - 4 years (I kept it on a battery maintainer anytime the car was not being driven for a period).  I cell died and I could start the car to get to a car show, but it was DOA when I tried to drive home from the show.   I have a good reliable Delco battery in use now and the "neutralized" repro is the trunk for show only.

Hey Dave, what Delco battery are you using? I want to get the side post battery and cables for my 06A. I think the battery is 78-6YR, but not really sure about what cables I need. The 69 AIM has one set of part numbers, but everyone else has a different part number not the same that's in the AIM. I want to get something at some point since the top post in my car is getting old.

Hello 69Z28,

Sorry for the delay; I have not been on CRG for quite some time.  I purchased a Delco ACD 78-7yr battery, item #19001631, professional grade car and truck, maintenance free battery.  Itís a 770 cold cranking Amp (CCA) rated and has never failed me for the seven years it has been in use.  The first one was purchased in 2000, and sure enough, 7-years later in June 2007, I purchased the 2nd unit. I use a battery maintainer if the car sits for more than 6 weeks or longer.  I try to at least drive the car once a month (give or take a few weeks) on a 10 mile trip during the winter if the streets are dry to keep everything in good working order and keep seals lubed. 

My side post negative cable is marked 6297650 AU, the positive cable is 6297683 AR, as noted in the AIM, Section 12 A11 on page 162.

Not a problem Dave. I ordered the side post cables this past weekend from LL. I was thinking of posting some pics if anyone was interested in looking at them when they come in.
