blackwat?.....The man from Motorworld?.......is that you?

As you can see, we`ve got a new forum.
If you register again, using your old name, I`ll get all your old posts back for you.

Polarity.....Which battery lead is connected to the chassis/body?, you can tell by the clamp size, +ve is bigger diameter.
Look at the coil, if the + terminal has the trigger wire from the points to it, it`s Positive earth, if the trigger wire is on the other terminal, it`s Negative earth.
The radio, if fitted will also tell you, all pos earth units have a label telling you it`s +ve earth.

Either way, it`s simple to change it from Pos to neg earth if needed.
