Do all Ford staters and ignitions use the fender mounted stater soleniods?

On my dads T-Bucket I was going to mount the sloenoid under the seat with the battery and fuse box.Can you guys think of any reasons not to do this,or any idea's.

I don't think the Optima battery outgasses, does it?

The optima is completely sealed and self-contained. No outgassing! This battery is also great in trunks and in the battery boxes under the floorboards...
