Hey guys excuse my ignorance on this. I recently got a 1949 Shoebox with a stock 6V positive ground elec. system. It is my first experience on a system like this. I have done some pretty extensive searching relating to my problem and have found some good info, but I wanted to post it and get opinions/help specific to my issues. The battery isn't getting a charge, it is only a couple weeks old. I thought it may be the voltage reg. Since my local parts store had one in stock I replaced it. Still no dice, so now I am wondering about the gen. I can charge the battery with a chager and get starts out of it for a while, and the car runs good, except when I start turning on the headlights etc. While running the voltage off the battery is about 6.2v, but I cannot get any votages off the generator at all, even in higher RPM's. I grounded the field line out also to max the gen. but got nothing. Also I think my battery gauge is stuck in mid position so that limits my trouble shooting a bit. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
