Positive or negative ground?

Post by jeep44 »

I posted in the old forum, and then realized that there is a new one.
In short, how do I tell the difference between a positive ground and a negative ground 6V generator? Is there any difference?

Yes as before, there is a good Haynes manual on auto electrics that should explain everything

Its all in the polarization. If its still out there check out vernco.com for a good description of vehicle electrical processes written by a pro "electron wrangler".

Unfortunatley Vernco doesn't seem to there anymore. Pity it was very useful.
