hi,

replace you 24 v starter with a 12 v starter. then all the wiring to the bateries is straight forward. The only real difference will be that you will need to take your starter button wire to the silinoid on the starter instead of the SP switch. I have used a small (ford automotive type) starter relay on the starter button wire so that the button has very light load put apon it. You should goto a negitive ground at this time but is not totally nessecery. Just makes installing radios and CB's easier later on, and alternators are a fine upgrade also.

Hi, I was just reading through some of these older posts and saw that you said you had a new harness coming. Just wondering where you got it from? I saw that new ones cost over 1,300 at Watt's and I figured I would attempt to make a new harness myself for that price.
