After taking the battery out for the winter, do you need to polarize the generator and if so how?

Thank you in advance,

Warren

ps: this is something that I needed to do with my 1957 Buick, which had a regulator.

Warren,
It's not necessary to polarize the generator after removing the battery for winter storage.

But a good question. I have a voltage regulator in my WWII jeep which is also generator 6v negative ground system. And it is suggested to polarize the system after every battery removal.

Must be a VR thing and not a generator thing.
