Good Read

I converted my 52 Chevy Styline from 6 to 12 volts. It wasn't very difficult though quite involved to do it right and address all components. I completed it through forum research and the use of this book. The book kind of comes off as a catalog to his parts, thought I'm not complaining. I ended up buying his DA plug, blower motor resistor, and Runtz voltage reducer. I would buy the book again, it has a couple of tips that were well worth the cost of the book along with a bulb conversion chart. I did a tech on the HAMB and Chevytalk outlining my conversion, just search for my name and you'll find it.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Just what I was looking for.

Simple and to the point. I learned a few things about alternators I wasn't aware of and will use a different alternator than I planned on. Great reference for someone who isn't an electrical wizzard like me.
Yes, I recommend this product.
