1956 Chevrolet Bel Air L6 charging issue
Just got done rebuilding the L6 to my bel air. For some unknown reason, the battery fails to charge. I measured the output at the generator with the engine idling and I could not get a reading. Perhaps the generator needs a nice clean ground through the fresh paint on the generator mount? With engine idling, the gen. light is on and the battery reads only 11.8 volts. All other connections are good and the inside of the generator was cleaned. All parts are there and intact. Voltage regulator box has not been adjusted since I got the car.
i'm pretty sure that car has a 6 volt system unless someone changed it over to 12v.if you have a 12v battery and its a 6v system you're probabally blowing the reguator.
