Will dwell tach/volt meters that are normally used on 6v. neg. ground work on my 1950 stude 6v pos. ground?

Thanks,
Dick

Yep, it'll work, but if I remember correctly, you'll have to reverse the leads.

Did someone recently state that 12 volt dwell/tac meters would function in a 6 volt environment? My non-FLAPS has never heard of 6 volts.

<LMAO> Now why do I not question that at ALL Tom?! Isn't it something that, they, the warm bodies "manning" the parts stores, (not real parts men), don't even know that 6 volt systems even exist?! [:o)] It's NOT funny that, as all of us old farts inevitably flop over, [xx(] the knowledge is simply just gonna go away, that is the real shame. If you want a REAL laugh, ask them how to SET the dwell! :D
