When charging the battery on my 1957, to35

Should I disconnect the + battery cable?

I do not want to fry the regulator.

Thanks for your input on this subject.

I would disconnect both terminals, sometime the terminals may need replaced and can be hard to work with and that is why some don't disconnect terminals, however the terminal should be in good shape for best connect when starting the engine, but I always disconnect both to charge just to be safe

It is always safer to remove the Battery Cables if you are unsure and then you cant do any harm. If you were used to doing this you could do it without removing the Cables, but it is definitely safer if you are unsure and you cannot do any harm...John(UK) fergusontractors@hotmail.com

When generator voltage is less than battery voltage (engine off or idling) the cutout in the regulator opens and disconnects battery from the charging system. When generator voltage rises above battery voltage the cutout closes to charge the battery.

Assuming your cutout is working it already has the battery disconnected from the regulator when the engine is off.

I was always told to pop the caps to vent, but I've charged sealed batteries with no problem.

There's NO need to disconnect the battery. Simply match charger (+) to battery (+) and charger (-) to battery (-).
