So I bought my AC Delco battery (79-6YR)... Thanks btw Jim.

Paid $250 for it - geez. lol

Seems to be an easy pop out pop in however just checking with the team if that is true.

Anything I should be careful about when installing my new battery?

Thanks!

While the battery tray is empty, check for signs of corrosion anywhere including the cable ends.

Where the negative (black) cable bolts to the chassis, remove and clean the threads on that bolt then reinstall.

Drop the battery in there, lock it down, connect positive (red) cable first, then negative cable.

Double check the vent line is clear and hook up the vent plumbing.

Finished for at least six years!!

$250???? Check the invoice and make sure that they didn't charge you for two, plus tax and installation. If so, go back and get the other one and sell it here or on eBay.
