B series battery hold downs

Recommended Posts


Ok I've been doing some research and found out according to the parts books the B-10 through the B-112 used the same bracket, then the 210 had there own and the 212 had its own as well. I have one off a b-10 and one off a 212, my question is does anyone have or know the difference of the 210 bracket? The b 10 is straight and the 212 is just like the b 10 only with side braces on each end of the bracket.

Part # for b10- 2026858

Part # for b 210- 2027831

Part # for b 212- 2027858

Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

From my knowledge the battery hold downs were not on the early B-10's but were on the later models. I don't think the dash support structure even had mounting holes for the battery retainers on the early ones.

I recall seeing dip type coatings for tool handles. Here is a link I just searched.

I've got one of those on my 2110 that I bought off fleabay as an NOS piece at least a half dozen years ago. It's the AW piece in Josh's post above. It is indeed rubberized, but I think a heavy powdercoat would suffice on it.

I found this one on the B110 I saved from the scrap pile.

It would appear to me though that most of the rubber coating was being held on with electrical tape. Hope this helps.

Some painting firms offer a vinyl coating which is dipped on parts and cured. A few "local" firms in the Briggs and Simplicity area offer this, and perhaps might have coating in the past. Believe the coating to be more for some level of corrosion, and help grip the battery. Over time can wear off, but lasts a rather long time.

id="quote">Harbor Freight at one time had a rubber or plastic that you could dip tool handles in to coat them.That should work if they still sell it.By the way I have 7 FDT's and have never seen a batt hold downI use a chunk of conveyor belt bend it in a U shape and wedge theBattery in.I'll have to check into this a little more.
