Looking for someone who has a stash of old heavy duty Delco truck battery cases or even just the caps. The attached show the style of battery and caps that I am looking for.

I remember as a kid watching an old mechanic take a bad cell out if one of those batteries and replace it with a good cell from another one. Charged it up, re-installed it and started the engine. Circa 1960.
