A edifying guide to the switch.

March 01, 2016
This is a simple guide to what needs to be accomplished to change from 6 volt to 12 volt. It covers all the necessary changes and was written by someone who had direct knowledge of many conversions. It gave me an overview and clarity which I had been unable to quite obtain even though I had done weeks of research on 12 volt conversions. The only negative was that they didn't send me ice cream along with it.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Good Read

November 15, 2012
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.

January 17, 2011
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.
