The car is a negative ground 6V 2 unit system. I connected the battery and went for a drive. The car lost all power. I discovered the negative post cable had disconnected. I re-connected the cable, started the car, noticed the ammeter gauge was pegged to the left, then a wiring burning smell and smoke from the dash happened. I turned it off. The wire insulation from the generator to the ammeter was burned off. I am thinking the polarity changed. What happened and what has to be done to fix it? Thanks, David
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!!!
