Hey guys, seeking a little guidance. My 1954 Chevy 3100 is a 6 volt. Shortly after I bought her, I took her out for a drive in the evening. I (maybe as an idiot) used both lights and the heater. Had a lovely little 45 minute trip but after getting some gas before her long winter hibernation, she wouldn't start. Just that long drone of a 6 volt struggling to turn over. The sound of a dead battery. After speaking with the previous owner he informed me that because she was only a tiny 6 volt, he never used lights or heater. She was a sunny day, daytime only driver. Made sense.... But part of me was suspicious of the generator. The big old original Delco kind. Fast forward to her life in the garage over the winter, I got her a great GENIUS trickle charger, and for the most part, she would start right up. In the spring now I've had great success. Especially after an oil change, and the last few days I've had lengthy drives and then park her without a trickle charger. She's been good..... Until today!!! This is where I need a guiding eye. I decided to take her for her longest trip yet... to the firehall (my work) about 30 minutes away. I took alternate roads to keep her steady and not overworked on the highways up here... And the journey was great. As I got hear the station, I realized I had some time for a coffee... So I pulled off to grab a quick Tim Hortons. As I role into the parking spot, and take my foot off the gas... Kerplunk! She dies!!! After all that! Warm and having just done a big trip, she dies?!... Worse part, as I got to turn the ignition... That SAME 6V struggling to turn over drone from the gas station back in the fall. So what would YOU think is the issue here? Generator not working?... But I had great drives this week with no overnight trickles! 6V?... Didn't use the lights at all! Is it just time to go 12 V and make this girl Miss Reliable? Go as step further and just do all the electrical. Electronic ignition, Flamethrower etc. ? She's not perfect, and thata what I love about her. Just want to be able to count on her a little more. Any tips, directions you'd go, look into? Thanks a million!
