I reinstalled the Delco generator on my 1955 70 L.P., and I'm still getting the kinks out of everything. The ignition switch is missing so I temporarily ran a hot wire from the negative post of the battery to the coil/distributor and voltage regulator. Everything works just fine, battery charges, starts easily. My question: before I reinstalled the generator, if I disconnected the hot wire from the battery, the engine went dead. Now, it keeps running, so to shut it off I have to shut off the fuel. No problem, but why does this work with my setup, but on any other motor vehicle I have owned, if you don't have voltage coming in from the battery, the engine dies, charging system or no charging system. Just wonderin'....
