Just giving a shout out to see if anyone has a diesel style battery tray they want to part with, need it for the drivers side of my 76 GMC so I don't have to run a mile of battery cable to the starter! I have an Olds engine in this truck, so the starter is on the drivers side.

Thanks in advance!! If I cannot find a used one, I will probably buy one from LMC truck, they have new ones.

If you have a spare "TRAY"with nbo bracket, could you use a driver side upside down and put a tray right side up somehow

Not really, I took the original one which was welded to & modified already and cut it up to make it work on the passengers side, it just wont. So I would rather just get a proper one and use it.

Thanks for the link!! I checked on LMC and theirs is a few bucks cheaper.
if you dont mind a plastic tray, a menards battery tray or auto store proba have the same hbolt spots. the aux bracket is a pad and the base sits on it right

If so that would owrk. the OE driver not so much lol
