I'm having a hard time finding a 26R locally for my 8KW, 5501. Can I substitute another size? Is there extra room in the cabinet - I'm not at my cabin right now and can't see for myself. The 26R is L 8 3/16, W 6 13/16, H 9 3/4. If I remember correctly, the length is the more limiting dimension for a larger battery. Also, does the left/right position of the positive terminal make that much difference, is there enough slack in the connectors to switch? Also, what style connectors are needed, the 26R looks like it has round top posts. Thanks.

You didn't say where you live, but I do believe I've seen that size at WalMart.

Thanks for the tip. I'm in Auburn Calif and there's a Walmart in Roseville, Calif about 1/2 hour away. Stopped at NAPA and they don't have them in stock. Sears can order me one for in store pickup.

Our local Sam's Club has 26R for $59.xx. 540 CCA, 3 year 100% replacement, 5 year prorated after that. Call around to save on gas.

When I buy one for our newly purchased generator, I will most likely need to pay the $9.00 core charge if I cannot come up with an old battery to return. :(
