electrical problem 6 volt system

Recommended Posts

Need help. I picked up a 1927 Chrysler all original down to the leather brakes and it ran perfect. I have never had a 6 volt system before let alone a positive ground system. With that said, I purchased a new battery and hooked the ground to the positive (poof smoke). Engine turns over just fine, I no longer have lights or spark. I have been unable to locate any type of fuse. I have installed a new started solenoid and a new coil, still nothing works except the starter. Has anyone done this before or do you have any suggestions.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p>

The only fuse is on the under dash side of the light switch.

I suspect that one or more of the wires have had the cotton and rubber insulation failed.

Road Island Wiring ( Rhode Island Wiring Service Inc. ) should have a kit for your car.

It will take about $300 and a day to install (they have good directions ) and will look just like the original.

With 6 volt systems, make sure all connections are clean and tight.
