Default Question On 1939 Deluxe Battery Hold Down

Does anyone have the correct hardware for the rear battery hold down bolt that goes through the firewall bracket to the battery retainer. If anyone has a photo that would be helpful, or can tell me where to get one. Would purchase a used one if anybody has one.

Thanks

I am not 100% certain just what you are looking for.
Picture attached herein that hopefully is what you are attempting to assemble. Let me know if we are on the same track please.

I got a bracket like the one in Kubes picture from Drake recently... That's the little bracket that goes firewall to battery surrounding piece. I didn't have the original-

Does Drake make the 39 bracket? I knew he made one for 1940 but 39?

Kube, i found a nos bracket that goes to the firewall, what is the fastner that is used to attach the retainer to the bracket, almost looks like a carriage bolt?
Thanks Mike

I don't know if this will help but I had trouble using the aftermarket hold down until I got the correct size battery. I do think that the terminals are on the wrong side though. Anyway here's a pic of mine. I had to put an insulator under the positive ground cable to keep it from shorting on the lead battery top. I will be getting a coated cable soon.
