I'm just finishing converting my C back to 6 volts from 12vt. All the wiring diagrams I have located show only wiring for Mag. Can someone tell me which side of the coil (+ or -) the wire from the distributor needs to connect to? (This will in turn tell me which side I then need to connect my wire from the kill switch to)

If all goes well, my 10 month project to restore this ole girl will be done in time for a parade next weekend. I can't wait to hear it purr again!

Thanks in advance for the help!

The - side of the amp gauge goes to the ign switch to feed 6 volt to the coil. The + side of the coil goes to the distributor. I hope the KILL switch you refer to is an ign switch. If it is a kill switch for a mag, it will be a dead short when you turn it on!! Duey

Thanks Duey,

Yes, it is an ignition switch (same one that the 12 volt system used).

Today's Featured Article - Sunday Drives - by Cowboy. Summer was finally upon us here in Northern Maine. We have two types of industry up here, one being "Forestry" (Wood Products) and the other "Farming" (Potatoes). There is no shortage of farm tractors and equipment around here! I have been restoring old Farm Tractors for the past 6 years, and have found it easier and less expensive to hit all the auctions and purchase whole tractors for parts needed.
