I have a 1944 2N all original equipment. 6 volt, front distributor, etc.
My amp gauge always shows on the negative side. Generator has the cutout on the top of the generator. I used a volt meter and while running checked the battery. The volt meter jumps all over the scope, 0 to 12 volts. Strange....I've done this before and seem to remember that 6.7 volts is the desired generator output.
My question to all: what is the best way to check all generating components while running??? Cut out maybe? Using my meter, how do I check the generator to see if it's functioning correctly?
Any advise will be greatly appreciated.
