Newer DEEP CYCLE Interstate
8D batteries (manufactured by US Battery
after 2010) will use the longer water kit float with extended valve
length. Most Interstate deep cycle batteries manufactured
after 2010 will measure 1 5/8" to the water full level and only have a
3/4" press style cap. Only install the longer float valve kit
in the Interstate battery measuring the longer 1 5/8" dimension.

is 16mm diameter (.640" diamter) x 33mm water level shut off
or 1.30". With stem extension of 13mm this totals 46mm or
