  1. I'm thinking of converting my stock 6 volt system to a 12 volt on my '37 Special. Is this smart or is it not worth the effort?
  2. Hello all.. quick question. My '49 Roadmaster only seems to show a (SLIGHT SLIGHT) charge while in "Park". While driving tonight, it seemed to do fine for about 40 minutes (It pretty much stayed in the 0 or neutral position). After that, it went completely to the "discharge" position and wouldn't "pop" back up until I brought it home and Parked it in the garage... then, while in "Park", I had to rev it up and bingo! Ammeter went from "discharge" to "neutral". I know about polarizing the voltage regulator. I just completely cleaned up ALL of my wire connections- they look new now. Generator was brought in early this year, and the guy said it tested out fine. Any ideas??? Oh, and BTW... MERRY CHRISTMAS Buick Lovers!!! Jerry 1949 Buick Roadmaster - with open portholes!!!
  3. Back again! My '49 Roadmaster has been treating me real nice these last few months.. however, last night I took her out, and noticed first off that my dash lights and headlights got really dim after a few miles of driving. Now I think this is odd, since I have replaced my voltage regulator (yes I've polarized it before starting the car after installation), had my generator checked out (guy said it is fine), put a new fan belt on (and it's not too loose), and... I have even been able to leave my car sitting for weeks without removing the battery cables and when checking the battery with a multimeter the numbers read 6.2 while not running. SO..... I had to return her home since my headlights (and every light) were getting to dim to drive around safely. Well... while idling in the garage (with headlights on), I pressed on the accelerator to give her some gas and- SPUTTER SPUTTER SPUTTER. I noticed that when I turned the headlights off and pressed on the accelerator the engine sounded fine and was strong. I switched back and forth with lights on and lights off just to make sure that this was happening and it is. You guys think my battery is weak even though it shows proper voltage (Yes, I do have the proper gauge cables as well)... Is my new voltage regulator bad?? Is my generator bad?? ANY help or comments are very much appreciated. Thanks. Jerrys 49 1949 Buick Roadmaster 4 Door in sunny SO CAL!
  4. I have a 32 Ford truck that is currently 6v w/generator. I would like to convert it over to a 12v system. Is it difficult? Is it expensive? Any ideas? Thank you
  5. Ok guys.. I know a few of you have been following my antics with my 1949 Roadmaster... well, I noticed today, that when I hooked up my battery to the 'ol car, the voltage regulator got hot, and the generator was getting warm! Now this was happening with the car OFF and the ignition in the OFF position! I have noticed some sparks coming from the negative battery terminal whenever I hook up the battery, so I was looking everything over today and was about to open up the voltage regulator when I noticed it was hot... I remember some of the guys mentioning this in one of my previous posts, so perhaps I might be able to fix this problem by messing around with the points on the regulator?? I'm actually thinking this IS the problem of why my battery drains when the car is off overnight. Jerry 1949 Buick Roadmaster 4 Door
  6. Hello! I am fairly new to the whole 6V ignition system, but assuming that it works on the same theory as a 12V ignition system. Here's the situation: I have a 1949 Chrysler Windsor with the original 251 Flathead 6. The motor was seized, so I disassembled it, rebuilt it, got it to turn over freely, etc. Well, I cannot seem to get any spark to get it to fire up. I have replaced the coil, points, condenser, etc, all to no avail. Any ideas where I may be going wrong? Thanks in advance!
  7. PLEASE CONTACT ME IF YOU COME ACROSS OR POSSESS A 6 VOLT STARTER FOR A FLATHEAD V8 FOR I NEED IT FOR MY PROJECT(1952 CHIEFTAIN PONTIAC)
