I have a restored/repaired 70 lawn tractor. I do not use this tractor so its clean & dry. I need to keep it in storage a while & then eventually move it to a new house. Because its so hard to find parts for these tractors & I have spent a lot of time on it, I am going to build a crate for it so I have some reasonable assurance I'm not going to get damage while in storage or on the road. I'm not sure what to do with the battery. Its sitting in the tractor disconnected & more than likely dead by now. But I'm not sure if I should remove it from the tractor & just box it up separately. Or leave it in the tractor for the duration. It could be sitting in the crate as long as six to eight months. I don't know if there will be battery issues like fumes or acid problems. Anyone have any opinions.
