Come to think of it, a previous poster mentioned earlier cars having
vented batteries as well. There IS a different cap for them, one that
the DELCO lettering on the top of the cap reads from the opposite side.
The late model caps have the vent coming out the "top" side of the cap
when you are reading the DELCO name, the early model has the vent coming
out the "bottom" side. Something to consider next time you're looking
for them in a swap meet.
