The 8 volt battery could cause trouble in the V8s.Higher voltage would burn generator armature wire.A 17 ga wire was used in the armature.8 volts would harm oil pressure sending units,oil pressure gauges,gas gauges and sending units,lights,heater motors,radios,electric wipers, electric fuel pumps, ignition coils,ignition points,voltage regulators.8 volts did ok in tractors that did not have electrical gauges.I have owned 6 Ford V8s so I know a bit about them.I still have the 36 coupe and a load of parts for early V8s and Model As.I know that you should not turn on head lights too soon after starting the engine in cold weather.The cold battery does not load the generator soon enough so head lights can burn out.The tractors will have the problem.
