66 Series Battery Covers


Recommended Posts

How are the battery covers on a 66 Series tractor supposed to fit? My covers want to slide off to the outside of the battery and wont stay in place. Is there supposed to be a spacer in between the battery and the cover?

Original IH Battery covers fit over the edge.

The after market ones fit on top.

Problem with this is the battery acid will eat away at the paint.

I found this fix on the forum a while back.

Weld an angle iron in as shown.

It worked on our late dad's 1066

Than the cover will hang over the edge a bit and the battery acid won't get to the paint.

I ended up drilling 3 holes equal distance across the back straight edge of each cover. I then cross connected high tension adjustable rubber bungee cords to the covers and placed a 3/4" piece of wood strip on top of the battery to make them level, tightened the wing nuts down and seems to work perfectly.
