    Default Battery Question

    I recently went to check on the condition of the battery in a Cherokee 140 and found that there was some corrosion coming from one of the cells. I'm not sure if the cell is dry or not and will check that this weekend. I was talking to a friend and he mentioned that he normally uses water and baking soda. Anybody ever hear of doing that? Any recommendations?

    My battery is a Gill and I believe it is a G-35. I will confirm that this weekend also.

    Any info is much appreciated.

    I believe that a Gill G-35 is a wet cell lead acid battery.

    Do not put baiking soda in a lead acid battery cell, ever.
    Only use distilled water.

    Period.

    Baking soda nuteralizes acid.

    Not all who wander are lost, just momentarily disoriented...
