Default Re: Electrical question

It is not recommended at all to disconnect the battery while the engine is running.

If you do this at a fast enough engine speed where the generator is charging and the cut out is closed, the generator voltage will increase above battery voltage and this may burn out light bulbs and burn points etc. Just watch the ammeter, it will tell you if the generator is charging.

My opinion,
