Hmmmm...photo link'* not working...at least not for me.

Anyway, if the battery fits and has enough amperage, and it looks like it does, then you should be OK. Just make sure that it is held down and in properly without any undue stress on the case.

i replaced mine with a different group battery, and hth vent tubes were not large enough to fit on the larger battery, i just used some fuel hose to lengthen the vent tubes and it wored fine.

Yes, the battery is located under rear bench seat, right side. And it is vented to the outside atmosphere through a vent tube that penetrates the floorboard.
