does anyone know the dimensions on a new battery that you need for one of those top covers to snap on. I called NPD today they told me 9in by 11in and a battery terminal seperation of 8in from inside to inside. this seemed a little big to me though. thanks

It is correct for a group 24 series battery.
OEM early Mustangs came with a smaller group 22 battery standard.

I just went through the same thing,finally found a battery that it would fit and now my hold down is too narrow to fit over the new top This only applies if your holddown goes over the top of your battery.
