Ok, from my first post and reviewing the manual (should have done first) I have a generator NOT an alternator on my 9N.

Given this, would the wire diagram I have listed on this webpage in theory work??

Karl, It looks like someone has installed a GM generator from a early 60s on you're N. You mentioned in you're earlyer post that you have a short. I would strongly suspect the voltage regulator. If you want to stay with 12 volt I would recomend using the 3 wire GM alternator and wire it acording to the diagrams posted by bg. That would be just a little more expensive than just replacing the voltage regulator (if you can find one). If you want to go back to 6 volt the generator and regulator would be more expensive than going to the alternator.

Here's Neil Reitmeyer's diagram:

Karl's "napkin" diagram, as well as the Neil Reitman diagram, both show the questionable practice of running the lights off the switched side of the ignition (i.e. S1 and S2 are in series). Contrast this with Brian's page, which (correctly) connects the lights to the unswitched side of the terminal block.

The stock ignition switch is only rated at 5 amps, and the coil uses up a fair bit of this. The key switches are noted for "going flaky" just running the ignition system, never mind running an additional 5 to 10 amps through them for headlights.

If you are careful never to turn off the ignition switch without turning off the lights first, you might get away with this. But why do it? It seems more useful to be able to run the lights off the battery with the engine shut off than to try to emulate modern cars with their "running lights".

David, "the questionable practice of running the lights off the switched side of the ignition"

You need to use much stronger language... ie.. "moronic practice" or "butt stupid" I think ppl have kids and don't want the lights to work without the switch... perhaps an option "If you want ignition problems"
