OK guys I am sure this has been covered before but I want out throw a twist regarding the conversion and whilst I am damn clever (geez he’s bragging) I don’t know everything.
I sent this to Ken Jenkins of the JEC in the UK.
I am sure you have answered this question a million times so I will give you as information as to what I have done so you can answer the questions.
I am converting my 1964 Jaguar MKII from Pos to Neg, I have done
New Neg Fuel Pump
New Neg Alternator
New Neg Clock (Electronic)
New Neg Dist.
Bypassed Voltage Reg.
New Neg Radio
Lovely Optima battery
Fuel gauge and or fuel sender unit wiring
Ammeter (do not wish to replace with voltmeter)
Oil pressure sender
Anything else you can think of."
His reply was a little scary, does anyone have an opinion, Ken is very experienced but times change is he correct.
The fuel gauge, and sender unit and oil pressure sender are not polarity conscious.
The rev counter is driven by its own AC generator.
It should have heavy duty wiring and a volt meter, can you put a shunt on the ammeter to protect it?
Sorry, not very helpful but we are not insured for this kind of work, so avoid it.
You may have heard that 3 JEC members cars have burnt out when they fitted alternators and did not notify the insurance Company or have the car certificated by an Auto Electrician.
None had a pay out.
That one aside I wish to purchase clip on door mirrors anyone recommend a place ?
As always guys thanks for you help/input.
