I am a newbie to this forum, and seeking advice for a dumb move on my part. I changed the battery on my 49' Chrysler Royal. Prior to doing so the voltage regulator was buzzing intermittently. After replacing battery, I followed what I thought was the correct procedure to polarize the new original Autolite positive ground 6v regulator and flashed batt to field. Had it been a Chevy it would have worked. I went ahead and flashed batt to ARM, but still have intermittent buzzing. Did I just ruin my new regulator.?
Recently acquired a 49 Chrysler Royal. I am just now getting familiar with a shop manual and parts list. No trailer queen here, just a really sweet driver in exceptional condition. Parts is my only concern. I see most of the basics appear to be available. My first task is to replace a buzzing voltage regulator, and a cowl vent gasket. I'm just not sure how to remove it yet. I have the replacement gasket, and it looks like the vent itself needs to come out to properly clean gasket channel and replace gasket.
