6v questions 1967 1600

Recommended Posts

well............... if you have a 12 volt battery in the car now?

it's running we assume?

look at the label on the alternator, and voltage regulator

it should read

either 6volt..... or 12 volt and other data

remove a headlight bulb and look at the

markings on it - 6 , or 12 volt ????????

the wiring changes with 6-fuse, 12-fuse cars,

and changes a little over the years

They did not go to the 12 fuse panels until 1971 all 6 and 12 volt cars had the 6 volt fuse boxes until then. The heater fan, gauges, lights starter and charging system are the reall big issues (I know that is just about everything. ) The 6 volt systems usually had generators not alternators. Unless you have found a time capsule I would guess it has already been converted to 12 volt by now.
