Low and behold though we put our piece of equipment on the battery and it would not accept a charge at all. In fact it only took a few amps to bring the voltage up to 60 volts! Gradually the voltage was brought down by the machine and over a two day period the it would finally accept a full charge on their own charger.  
It was left on their charger over night on equalize. The next day when we returned the all the acid readings where right where they were supposed to be and we did a load test which was found to be 94% of a new. It continues to be used back in service for a full shift to this day. And it was a battery that was fixed with no cell changes.
