1949 Plymouth p18

Recommended Posts

How do i convert back to six volts from 12 volts without messing up reliability? TOOK RUSTY GENERATOR OFF 53 . WILL IT WORK? Also have Dodge generator off 49-52.WHAT ELSE DO I NEED BESIDES BULBS AND BATTERY? 12 VOLTS SUCKS. NOTHING WORKS RIGHT. Horn is too loud. Heater blows too fast. Starter sounds like ready to explode. Guages dont work. Wipers dont work. Interior and dash lights dont work. Idiot conversion before i bought car. Not sure what I need to make right again.

Without knowing what all was changed it is hard to respond. Remember your Plymouth should be positive ground, the coil may have been changed to a 12 volt. Get a service manual, should be an easy find.

I have a few old Chryslers and would never consider changing to 12 volt.

The instrument bulbs could be blown from 12 volts, put your legs up over the front seat and your head on the floor and start looking under the dash for unhooked wires or burnt out bulbs. Once you get into position it isn't too uncomfortable and on a 49 Plymouth you will be able to see up under the dash to study things.

Good luck,

Jay

As for your generators most should work, I have only seen a couple of high amp generators that have a larger case. Check the generator pulley for width they may be different.
