    Can any of you funsters tell me where I can get parts to make a battery vent. I need an elbow to fit into vent hole at the top of the battery, also a bung to seal the vent at the other end of battery and tube to fit the elbow.

    It could be worth looking in an aquarium shop as similar sized tubes are used for aerating fishtanks, otherwise the supplier/manufacturer of your battery.

    No idea where you will get ' proper' parts but this may get you out of trouble.

    windscreen washer jet plumbing.....

    any motoring shop will stock the T pieces, 90 deg elbows and tubing.
    if you cant get an elbow just cut off one ' leg' of a T and seal the open end with a little araldite.
    if the plastic elbow/T is too small for the hole then use a little more araldite to glue it ln....dont get any in the T piece.
    again using araldite, fill the hole at the opposite end of the battery.
