  12. Charging System Question

    Rustdog, I just went thru the same thing with my '58 H63. I changes the electrical system from positive ground to negative ground. I first found a local auto electric shop had the generator & voltage regulator checked out. Found the two end plates mounting hole were out of round and armature had flat spot. luckly they had end plates and armature from another generator. The voltage regulator was sticking, they got me a new one (50amp) with double contacts (came with voltage regulator installation instructions), shows polarization instructions. I also attached series/parallel swith instrcution that show voltage regulator connections. Hope this helps. Tom
