What is a good alternative battery to use instead of the NH Brand? What size does it take? My old battery label was rubbed off. Thanks.

I don't have an exact answer but in general diesels take batteries with high amp hour and high cold cranking amp ratings. Both are important. Depending on accessories, a ballpark battery for yours likely would be minimum 70 amp hours and 775 cold cranking amps. Some Ford/NH tractors around a TC33's size do have 100 AH batteries, which look long and narrow compared to the more nearly cube of 70's-AH batteries. Maybe somebody has the exact specs.

I've used a good auto battery that exceeded factory specs in my Ford 1710 for about 4 years and it's worked OK. However, there are issues. Tractors give a bumpy ride and ordinary auto batteries won't last as long but 'off-road' batteries would be better. It may be hard to find a maintenance-free battery with high enough ratings that will fit in the compartment. Batteries that require venting may be smaller but they've have known to corrode through tractor radiators. Factory batteries have corroded trough rads for that matter. I haven't had either problem yet. The battery I use is vented through the caps and it is mounted a front of the rad. I faced the vents forward and I check regularly for corrosion. ....
