Mama Deere has available a neat battery cover kit consisting of plastic cover, J bolts, wing nuts, and such. It also has a round post terminal end that I don't use, but includes the positive terminal plastic cover used on the 200 series and up. The best part is that Mama Deere provides them FREE of charge ! If I get a tractor that is missing its original hold down hardware I use the kit. Evidently there was some Stink in the past about the battery terminals being exposed near the fuel tank so Deere offers it. For what its worth.....J.
