1939 wiring diagram


Recommended Posts

would anyone have a diagram for a 39 special showing the wires on the generator to the relay on the firewall?im having trouble with my charging system and the only wires i can remember possibly screwing up when i rewired the engine area are those three wires.maybe does not make a difference but i eliminated just about everything else. thanks

The manual does not refer to wire color,

Field of generator goes to Field of relay

"A" terminal on generator goes to center terminal of relay

other relay terminal should be marked "B" for battery and wire goes to charge indicator on dash.

took the car today to get an electrical check and was told all components are good.he did say that i had a voltage drop from the regulator to the battery and the readings were at the battery6 and the battery 7.he advised me to sandpaper all the connections.hopefully this will solve the problem.

buick39, as a temporary fix, try running a wire from the battery terminal on the regulator to the battery .This will bypas the charging indicator, but should not be a problem. It will just be an additional path to the battery. When I rewired my '50, I used 8gauge wire instead of the 10gauge in the original harness. My belief is that the 10gauge is a little small. Also, do you have the correct battery cables? The positive one should be as big as your thumb. The ground is about 1 inch wide, flat.

Hope this helps
