His extension tube looks used.

I would assume that the tube in the pic above went with his old battery...and that his old battery's vent hole was at the top center. Where as the 94/95/H9 class size batteries all tend to have their vent holes on the side of the battery...which also requires the little black elbow adapter that was used in the original BMW battery. these batteries are also usually mfg'd by EXIDE/East Penn.


The batteries that vent from the top center and that require the vent kit...are usually the 48/49/H8 battery class sizes...or the ones mfg'd by Johnson Controls.
