But I'm sure a lot of it is just plain old constructive criticism, and I can live with that. I refuse to be offended and don't like to fight, and will not be deterred because I have other stuff to share later. I post stuff like this to inspire others, and not to brag about my fabricating skills, honestly. I do enjoy teaching and sharing my skills with others, and this is a good place to do that.
OK, that said, I want to thank those who responded, and your points, and suggestions are well taken. Believe me, I am aware of exploding batteries, and how serious that can be. But really, after driving all kinds of motorized vehicles for the last 60 plus years, I have yet to see or experience an exploding battery. Doesn't mean that it will never happen, but I'll take my chances.
I'm sure IH was aware of the hazards of exposed batteries, prompting them to enclose their batteries. Back then no, but today that would be referred to as a"lawyer thing". lol
