Big A auto parts?
Sounds reasonable to me Dell with my zero understanding about anything inside these charging components. It wouldn't surprise me a bit about them...
AJ, curious which style of voltage regulator thats been working for out good for you?
Always wondered if one lasted longer than the other....
Looks like it should last you a lifetime. Nice work.
The best place to start is to get a factory service manual.
They have the schematics which you can use to rewire your
entire car if you need.
Looks like a 68.
No I said as long as the mixture is lit. Big difference.
Will try again later, posting problems.
If the mixture gets lit it makes no difference in the burn.
If it was done with a short gap set plug from a set of breaker points
or a long...
Mopar also makes ignition boxes made for higher cylinder pressure.
It seems to be luck of the draw when it comes to electronic parts.
They switched over to 12v in 56.
I parted out a 56 DeSoto and have some spare parts squirrel'd away
like the blower motor and possibly wipers...
I know you are correct and it is logical to keep things cool.
This is just a nostalgia thing. Really the entire car doesn't make sense
It ain't worth nothing till it gets up to temp. It will get there quick im sure with 13.5:1 compression.

I also wouldn't put these pulleys on a street car.
My goal here is to get the ratios to match the 65 or 68 race hemis.

First thing a person should know is that moroso makes two...
This alternator will not be for street driving so it should be OK. Fingers crossed.
I also plan to use the constant output voltage regulator....
Matching crank pully.
Good eye Dell, yes this is a old moroso pully. It is half of a set that also includes the crank
pully. You would think they would have made a...
Thanks for the replies, you confirmed my thoughts I would have to disassemble the alternator to press the new pulley on. Time to learn something...
Any tips or direction you got.
Looks like pully is pressed on. No threads in shaft for a puller.
Want to use the aluminum pulley shown in picture.
Circuit continuity check is a good place to begin.
Back of head to voltage regulator mounting bolt on firewall.
Braided copper strap that has been plated.
Negative side of the battery to front...
I like the vintage look of your choice of guages and engine turned panel.
Clever shift light idea also.
Can we ask which parts of this coil are being salvaged and what its new intended use happens to be?
And what's a pcb?
Ahhh, I see. Thought it was a repair. Not the first time I didn't get it.
Coils are a disposable part when they begin leaking or are burnt up.
Same goes for ignition control box's, electronic voltage regulators...
Impressive, thanks for posting the photo. Dan gets a thanks also.
They came in two common sizes. 2 1/16" & 2 5/8". I like the full sweep mech.
