I have a 1926 T with a mechanical cutout. Should I switch to a negative ground diode cutout before I start fixing the car up?
Adam, go the extra buck and get a fun projects voltage regulator, looks like the cut out and you will never be sorry. KGB
I second Keith's suggestion. They work great!
OK. Thanks for the great advice. I will get one. Looking forward to fixing it up a little.
If you have a known good working generator by all means use the FunProjects Voltage Regulator. But a FP VR is not a cure for an unknown generator/charging system.

Ron -- I am not sure if it charges or not. I am just getting this car put back together after not being started in 8 years. I am guessing the mechanical cutout is probably bad. I do not want to drive it without doing something to it first. I may have hurt it already by just cranking it.
Adam; sorry but sounds like you are getting the cart before the horse. I would check the generator before putting a new regulator on. It would be a shame in the pocket book to have it blow out because of a bad generator. From the reports the Fun Projects is the way to go.
I have been using a NORS Standard (I would have to check the box)cut out for some time and have only had it stick a couple of times and that was a few years back.
