Default What is the best Diode cutout

What is the best diode cutout for the Model A?

I have been trying to contact Tom Wesenberg but to no avail.

He and I had talked about this question back in June but now I am having trouble contacting him.

I got mine from Brattons. $ 52.95. I've had it for about 10 years now. Or they sell a kit to make your own for $ 6.95.

Look at Fun Projects voltage regulator as a better alternative to a diode cutout.

That one is for Model T, which is negative ground.

is what you want. Their other page shows it's been out of stock forever, but give it a try.

Sorry Just went to the Fun Projects site. Should have paid closer attention to the link I copied. They are "always" out of stock. Call their number. Daughter or Wife will answer. Put you order in and they will call you when they're back in stock and ship directly to you.

Thanks for the reply--according to they web site those cutout are for negative ground systems. What needs to be changed to make that happen?

Okay--sorry--I just read the other post--they do sell a positive ground unit.

If the cutout is a diode and you have a system that has a ground incompatible with the diode, reverse the diode connections or change the ground polarity. Diodes only conduct current in one direction on the basis of polarity.
