Default united battery box

I want to thank every one that helped me with the skid/truck dimensions for the IHC 3 hp m. Hope to finish the metal work for it this week.

Can anyone help me with a discription of a united 1 3/4 hp ignitor battery box? color or natural, lettering, switch locaton, clip or thumb screw location?

Thanks for any help possable.

I believe most boxes are at the rear because it's mostly out of the way if you have to work on the engine.

Great! Thanks for that posting as I'm restoring a 1 3/4 United and I'm gonna need to make a box. Might as well make it the right size. I've got the finger joint setup so I'm all set. When I look at those photos though the lumber looks thicker then 1/4. Could we get a second measurement on that?

Hank

Sorry About The Dimension's. I Must Have Had Something Else On My Mind. The End's Are 3/4''. The Sides Are 1/2''. And The Lid Is 1/2".
