Can anyone tell me the correct size of the rubber battery box for a 51 plunger please?

I havent got and original one to measure unfortunately, hopefully someone will come up with some measurements.

Because I'm a cheapskate I have always made my own, mine are 120mm wide, 90mm deep and 160mm high. They fit all the bikes I have had including the plungers. I just drop a modern battery inside.

 I didn't think they used a box,  just the battery strapped in..I have an old original style one back at the Low Chaparral that I can measure in a while- if I  remember..

  Ok I remembered...
 125mm long/ 87mm wide / 156 high plus long lost top (~ 1/2" ?)
 I think an old Century battery
