  • Negative or positive ground

    I have a 56 champ 6 cyl. When I first got the car in 1983 it was hooked up as a positive ground. I drove it that way for 2 years. I am now rehabbing and again am using positive ground. Everything works. I just now read in the shop manual that it's a negative ground. What's right? I'm real nervous about changing it around. Help!
    Thanks, Tom

    Is this a 12 volt system? What is the model number on the serial number tag in the door hinge pillar, driver's side? Should start with 56G. Normally, all you would have to do is turn the battery around, reverse the wiring connections at the coil and ammeter (your car has a charge light instead?) and re-polarize the regulator. It can get a little more complicated than that on some cars though.
