Yeah, I'd remembered that a bit later on...
My stint in the battery retail store biz went from January of 1993 to October
of 1995, so I'm a bit fuzzy about recalling some of those details these

The ones they make with multiple cells in a plastic case have a flat top
that's rectangular in cross-section and that might be an issue, depending on
the housing. A quick google gets me to this page:
where there's a picture of one, what they're calling a "0819-0012 6v 2.5Ah
Cyclon Lead Acid Battery". Not a bad price at $15.70, either, if it'll
fit. The individual D sized cells are here:
at $7.90 each, not terrific but not too terrible either.
