Our 67 Sovereign
was the late model build with the converter under the rear bath sink curb side. The PO had a bad leak problem in the area and just moved the converter and a new electric wire line back to where the older 67's had them, under the street side gaucho and did not have a 12 volt
battery. Sounds insane but that is what I have to deal with.
There is no sign of a battery box area to be found and no breathing outlet for a sealed battery box. I have updated the wiring and have a six line power box under the bathroom sink and plan on putting the converter in the street side rear closet sealed up above the converter and 12 volt
fuse box. The PO added and moved all the wiring needed to do this,(1 where does the battery go in the late model 67? I find no battery venting anywhere. (2 will it hurt the value if I have to cut a hole in the side or rear to put in a battery fumes safety vent, or is the air flow in the rear trunk, as it is called, enough if the battery is placed in the truck area?
I will have to have access to the battery to do the maintenance needed.
I am now using a Ford F-150 sealed battery while I am restoring the unit, but I am not sure if that could be a solution in the end. The owners book does not show the battery in the electric diagram that I can see, but the print is so small that I have to use a pair of reading glass w/ my glasses just to make it out and it has no diagram for the late model at all and just says it the converter was moved to under the bathroom sink storage area.
Ya'll have been great so far in helping me and I do thank all the Forum family for their support with this refurbish project.
