B C CA G WD WD45 Battery Insulators

I've got a few Dealer Parts Catalogs for various AC tractors. According to these Catalogs, the Insulator, battery box cover (Part # 211435) & the Insulator, battery box (Part # 210908) are common to the B, C, CA, G, WD & WD45 tractors. (Perhaps others - these are the ones I had that matched.)

I have a G that I'm working on. I've never even seen a complete original metal Battery Box - let alone the insulators. The B IB C Parts catalog notes that these Insulators were made of wood. Sounds like the insulators could be reproduced with some common woodshop tools - if the dimensions of these insulators were known.

Question: Does anyone have knowledge of the dimensions of the top & bottom battery insulators? Even better, does anyone have the actual insulators? I'd be interested in the type of wood as well - plywood or whatever.

Thanks!

Scott

It appears that plywood was invented prior to masonite...

Below is where the "wood" reference came from (part # 3). I think they actually mean wood since there is also reference to a spacer (part # 4) on the IB that is made of wood.

Best regards,

Scott

I am sorry to say i do not know the measurements but the material was a dark brown type pressed paper some what like the material peg board is made of less all the holes. hope this will help you.

just measure the battery and make the insulator 1/2" smaller. 1/8" masonite or formica will work fine. I have seen some solid and some with holes at the fill caps. Bob

When our 42 C was delivered in 76 the dealer had put a new battery box on it and it had a masonite insulator in it. T.J.

Does anyone have the measurements for making a battery box, with the cover and the insulator.
Thanks................
