    Ive done a search on here and only found info on fords being positive ground(years accordingly).Trying to figure out if my 48 chevrolet stylemaster is positive ground.It was hooked up negative ground when I got It but finding some of the mistakes made by previous owners I wouldn't suspect that that could be backwards.I finally got it out for a short drive and when I got home battery was discharged,car would not start back up.charged battery on charger-car started.I have picked up a voltage regulator and will install that tomorrow.Wires from alternator are also in bad condition -will be replacing them to.Do I need to polarize the regulator

    Chevy is negative ground. You will need to polarize a new regulator.

    Thanks for the info man,now I'm ready to tackle that job tomorrow,hopefully the new regulator and wires get the job done -keep`n the battery charged up .
     
  4. the GM regulator that was on the car for a generator? should be marked on the side of the base if it is P or N ground if you have a six volt system yet? look on the old regulator
