Re: "Flickering" low bean headlights

My own opinion of the vendors selling load equalizers is hog-wash. Using a LED bulb instead of a regular bulb is like putting in a much smaller bulb and reducing current draw. It is probably...

Re: 12v from 3 brush Ford generator

My only concern about the Fun Projects Voltage Regulator is that it regulates the output of the generator and not the generator field itself. You adjust the output of the 3rd brush to get 8 to 10...

Re: 12v from 3 brush Ford generator

After repolarizing the generator, the battery becomes the limiting factor on how much voltage the generator produces. You must have a battery! If you do not have this load will burn out the bulbs...

Re: Polarizing a generator

When you motored the generator, it should have been enough to get the armature magnetized, probably not as much as shorting across the cutout with piece of wire for a very short time when attached to...

Re: AAOOGAH horn regulator

First, are you running 6V or 12V? Adjusting the horn would be the first step if running a stock 6V system. The dropping resistor could be added if running a 12V system.

Re: 12 volt

If has a 12V battery installed, most likely changed to negative ground as others have stated if you have an alternator. The generator will work either way if polarized correctly.
You can make the...

Re: Question ????

I always carry one in every car. Never had to use them. Also verify the status frequently to be sure they are still charged and ready to use. Nothing like needing one and not working!

Re: Four-Ways Work, Turn Signals Don't !!!

It seems counter productive that you have to install led lights then have to install resistors to get them to work with a thermal flasher. I installed LED turn signal bulbs, but could not find a...

Re: 29 Tudor electric wiper

Just to make sure the motor works, check with an additional ground wire to a real frame ground. Not just some where on the body. If you have 6 Volts at the motor from the harness, then check the...

Re: Checking 6 volt neg ground output with multi meter

To charge the battery, you will need about 7.2 Volts from the alternator as measured on the battery terminals.

Re: Does anyone know this generator?

It is a single wire alternator. If it is the early Delco, you can easily get 35 Amps. The two terminals you allude to are for the field and remote voltage sense. The regulator that is used in the...

Re: Generator noise, '30 Tudor

There was a video out not long ago about some young guys that replaced the engine oil with WD-40. The engine finally seized. Definitely WD-40 is not a lubricant.
