  1. I came across these two short tutorials on how a mechanical voltage regulator functions in detail. Apparently there are two basic types depending on how the generator field winding is wired, type A and type B. Other than that, the two types are identical. I'm guessing Pilothouse Dodge trucks use something closer to type A. They explain how the three parts of a voltage regulator control charging the battery, how it prevents the battery from draining back to ground through the generator when generator voltage is low or zero, and how it prevents overcurrent and over overvoltage conditions from happening. Just good stuff to know. Type A Type B
  2. I’ve replaced my 6 volt battery in my 1947 Plymouth two years ago and it appears I now need to replace it again. I’ve only had the Plymouth for 4 years, is this common or should I be buying a special 6 volt battery? thanks, chad
  3. I just finished installing a remote start switch on the inside firewall pad, just left of the clutch pedal. My battery is under the seat and it's a real pain to disconnect it, everytime I park the wagon in the shop. i've seen too many vehicle fires to feel comfortable leaving everything connected when I'm away. I decided to go with 4 ought (4/0) conductor from the back of the switch to the starter. I used my existing YnZ Wiring cable that came with the '40 Plymouth wiring harness because it already had the correct terminals (battery post and 3/8" end) to go from the battery to the switch. I've never had any electrical problems since the install a few years ago, however the YnZ conductor is obviously less beefy than the new one (2/0?). I know with 6 volt you want to minimize voltage drop, so I was thinking about replacing the other 3 ft cable with 4/0 conductor, but wire this large is pricey, so if it won't matter, I'll obsess on something else and leave it alone! Opinions?
  4. Has anybody seen such a battery? Perhaps a photo? What color was the bright part? Lettering? What was written on the top side? What color were the filler plugs?
  5. Peace Fam, Quick question. Im looking to buy a 6 volt battery for my B1D 126 and im looking for some direction on a good battery for it. Any help and suggestions will be appreciated!
  6. So, I recently inherited my Dad's 1940 Plymouth. I recall working on it back in the late 70's when he first purchased it. I feel completely stupid for asking this question but, the manual does not have the answer. Does anyone know where the battery is , or should be. I'm not sure if I'm looking in all the wrong places or if it was removed at some point. No box anywhere that I can see. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!
  7. So I have been working on my 52 dodge coronet, trying to get it ready to cruise to Iowa in May. Few weeks ago I installed a Champion radiator, new water pump, hoses & thermostat. I started the car to check for leaks & to make sure everything was working properly. No issues. I decided then to change the battery cables since they looked to be in poor shape. I had some left over 2 ga wire from my dual battery/ winch install on my 4x4 truck so I ordered some battery terminals from Speedway & got to work. Got the cables made & installed them. I also replaced the cable that goes from the starter solenoid to the starter. When I went to start the car it would only turn over like 1/2 a turn & then stop. Released the key and tried again. Same thing. Checked voltage of the battery and it reads just over 6 volts. Thought maybe we screwed up a cable or something so I just went and put all the old cables back on. It still does the same thing. Am I missing something here? Has anybody had a similar experience? After work today I'm going to put the charger on the battery just in case (battery is pretty new) clean all the connections real good and put new star washers on everything. The car is still 6 volt positive ground. I have a cable going from + battery terminal to the cylinder head (with a star washer). The - terminal cable goes to the starter solenoid. Then another cable from starter solenoid (with star washer) to the top of the starter. Thanks in advance
  8. I have noticed that batteries for the original cars have shrunk I bought a battery yesterday and it measures 9 inches. My other battery is 10 inches. The cold cranking amps are les as well. The question I am asking is the battery you bought as small mine or I'm I shopping in the wrong place? I remember The guy giving me a group 2 battery, I don't know what this battery is.
  9. I finally went over to my buddies shop and loaded ggdads file onto the cnc plamsa table. I love having friends with big boy toys. I then bent it up and was going to bead roll the bottom but they were using if on a legit paying project. Next time when I make one for my truck I will bead roll the bottom similar to the original. so again, thanks for the file ggdad!
