I used this for a old MTD Lawn Mower that had a very narrow battery slot. It worked really well. While selling it it was started maybe 70+ times and the last time it sounded as strong as when it was new!
It comes with the everything needed to fill it including the acid but you will need a slow charger that puts out no more than 2 amps.

Bought for a older riding mower. This battery was hard to find. Exactly what I needed. Having to put the battery acid in myself was a negative.

I needed a new battery for my motorcycle. Advance Auto had just what I needed, on a Sunday afternoon when many other stores weren't open. I ordered the battery on line, picked it up while running errands. The entire in-store experience probably lasted three minutes. I appreciate speed and utility. The battery was easy to fill, charged quickly, and fit like a glove. My bike was back on the road later that day.

    Comments about AutoCraft Powersports Battery, 50-N18L-A2, 260 CCA:

    AutoCraft is one of only a few manufacturers that still provide a battery for my vintage '78 Honda GL1000 motorcycle. The battery I purchased was an exact fit; Old School design where you have to add the battery acid yourself. Perfect for do-it-yourselfers that prefer a classic design without the 'trash and buy a new one' philosophy that pervades today. Good for mechanics that like to make old stuff last. The only thing I wasn'tm too happy about was that I was told that if I bought the product on=line, I would get a discount. That didn't happen.

            A:

            Hi Shu, glad to assist you! Not normally. Car batteries are already fully charged and it should be ready to install and crank it up. You can always check to see how long the battery has been sitting on the rack by looking at the date code on the side of the battery.

          how do I put the acid in the battery? Never done this before

          • A:

            The basic answer is carefully. Wear gloves and eye protection. Remove the 6 yellow caps and place them somewhere safe. Take your first bottle of fluid, open the vent and then cut the nub off about halfway down and place one of the tubes over it. Put the other end of the tube into your first fill hole and slowly pour in the acid. Fill it until you are between the lower fill line and the upper. Repeat process for the other 5 holes. Let it sit for a half hour, add more if necessary and then charge.

            Sorry, but I will not be able to assist you with that information for your safety. I would recommend taking it to a professional to either do for you or show you in person to avoid any injury. Battery acid is nasty stuff so you have to be extremely careful.

        • Q:

          Re:50-N18L-A2 battery: Mine came with no instructions but I had filled the same model battery before. Although this battery has the same model number it is physically different from my prior 50-N18L-A2 battery. This battery has seven caps instead of the six of the prior battery. Six caps are on one row and the seventh cap is in the middle of the second row. Filling the six caps to the lower level seems to evenly distribute the acid. So when do use seventh cap? Is it for topping off or is it for maintenance?

            The seventh cap is used on some motorcycles that have a battery water level sensor.

            A:

            CCA is the maximum amperes that can be continuously removed from a battery for 30 seconds at 0°F before its voltage drops to unusable levels. A 550 CCA battery can supply 550 amperes for 30 seconds at 0°F. This rating is only useful in the selection of engine starting batteries.
