if my meager understanding of charging systems is correct you need a voltage higher than the battery to charge it. meaning your 6v generator won't charge the 8v battery. that might be where adjusting the voltage regulator would come in, i don't fully know.schwim wrote: ↑May 20th, 2023, 5:54 pmWhat's your thoughts on running an 8v battery and adjusting the regulator?Super_Randy wrote: ↑May 20th, 2023, 5:40 pm your meager understanding is correct.
No relay yet. PO had put a new harness in right before I got it.
also don't know if you'd have to step down the ignition system to keep from feeding 8v to a 6v coil and points or any other electrics in the car (windshield wipers and radio for example). 8v through a 6v radio is probably not a good idea.
you could try searching a hot rod forum like The H.A.M.B. im sure people over there have done it. or at least know more than me.
