In doing the yearly check and clean I came across a heavy corroded Anti-siphon valve and while cleaning around it, it broke clean off the 90 degree just by a brush of a sponge.
It was a very interessting project to say the least because no one with in 12 miles had the anti-siphone valve and no one had a new 90 degree and to find a tapered tap was not easy either Not even Sears had one on hand but Action Auto parts came through for me.

A lot nicer than before anyway.

I drilled 2 holes in each battery box 3/8" facing the bilge just in case water gets in.

It looks nicer that's for sure.

BTW - The battery boxes are meant to contain the acid if a battery leaks. Drilling drain holes defeats that.
