How did you pay for it? If it was by credit card and you have a decent credit card company that will go to bat for you call them and file a complaint and ask them to get in touch with the manufacturer cause you did not get what they advertised, which was a "restoration quality" part. Tell them you can provide copies of emails to the company with pictures. Of there decent they will call and let them know they can correct the error or they will cancel the payment and reverse it. I have USAA and while I luckily have not had to go this far with anything my mother has them as well for a CC company and has had to do it several times, both times she was not happy, the company would not make it right and the CC company pulled the charge from the retailer and gave her her money back.

Sometimes you can also file complaints with the state attorney general I believe bit is for bad business practices. No one wants to be on that list and have those folks knowing they are getting complaints about them. You can let them know who you will be contacting. If it were me I would go as far as possible on principal. Don't even acknowledge me, and I will go farther than I probably would have otherwise. What does a battery box cost them in the whole scheme of running a business?? Especially knowing there now outed on a public forum in a pretty small nich industry of classic tractor restorations and repair!

Curious to know if anyone has done a comparison between a unique battery box and a TM battery box
I just had a look at the TM pics and the corners of the lid look a little different , but that could be the pic

Paul, in my opinion, the Unique Designs box is superior to any of the other repros out there, even TM.

Intetesting!

If someone is gonna re-pop a part (battery box), then why not make it exactly identical to the originals!

I wonder what ever happened to the tooling that oem tractor parts had!

I could not say tractor when I was 2 years old so I called it Err Err.

I loved this tractor then and I still love it now.

Sorry you had to go through that experience. Not a good box at all.

Didn't know if you had seen the thread on building a box in the How To Forum that I did a few years ago. Wasn't that hard to do. A sheet metal brake and a welder are the two major pieces of equipment you'll need. Located here:

The battery box I got from OEM toward the end of their run was also a piece of crap. The dies were worn out. The bottom stamping was horribly deformed. The front didn’t fit and the radius on the corners of the front panel was wrong. I sent it back for a refund.

I've seen your thread before - great job
The sad thing is that I work for a precision sheet metal company. I program the laser cutting machines , but too busy to do this sort of stuff.
I'm working on getting a unique designs box as we speak
