    I am a little offended with your illustration, Slanteyedshootist, given my close association with honorable, once-used Charred White Oak Barrels! You should have used a standard 55 gallon steel drum that had been used to slop the hogs for several years! That would be the environment this scum would be in, or looking into! :tooth:

    Well, if it's gotten that bad maybe you should look into using one of these:

    Speaking of British auto manufacturers, I read an article once about how when they first started importing their cars here, they couldn't understand why clutches were burning out so quickly. Turns out it was because they had no concept of running 70 miles an hour for 8 hours. This does not explain their electrical issues.
    In my younger days I spent some quality time in an MG Midget and an MGB GT. And a little time in an Austin Healey. Also a Jag J type but that thing was in the shop more often than not.

    Yes. Positive ground. Which it really make no never mind, other than its backwards.

    Well I guess everything is relative. I bet Teach or Tennmike can possibly give some specific examples, but I can remember some American cars and a tractor or two that had positive grounds back in the 50s and 60s.

    Studebaker Hawks, circa 1957, had a V-8 engine but a 6 volt positive ground, if I recollect correctly.

    A friend had one that ran like a scalded dog. It had no seats in it, so he sat in a lawn chair, and carried a five gallon bucket for the passenger side. That made for some exciting moments when he goosed it and the lawn chair tipped over backwards and folded up with him in it. I was powerless to help, because I ended up in the trunk.

    Nope, you recollect wrong. In 1957, all American automakers standardized their electrical systems at 12 volt negative ground. 56 Ford, Packard, Nash, and Studebaker used 12V positive ground systems, a one-year only situation after using 6V systems in 1955. All GM vehicles went to 12V negative in 1955 except 1st-series Chevy and GMC trucks which had 6V systems until the mid-year body style change. GMC used a 6V positive ground system prior to mid-1955.

    The standardization to 12V negative was at the insistence of aftermarket accessory manufacturers such as radios and air conditioner systems. It was too difficult to make 3 or 4 varieties of the same product to accommodate different voltages and ground polarities. Chrysler Corp. and Ford used 6V positive ground through the 30's, 40's, and early 50's, while most General Motors cars and trucks were negative ground.

    Was there any advantage to using a positive ground system? Or rather was there any real disadvantage to it, other than the accessory issue?

    I don't know why I thought there may have been some US cars with Positive ground in the 60s other than most of what we tinkered with then was made in the 50s. Mama took a dim view of me tinkering with her beautiful 62 Pontiac. When she wasn't looking, I was always jackin with it trying to shave a little time off the quarter. I was always jackin with the tension on the lifters. I'd loosen 'em up till that cylinder was missing and come back down till it quit clicking, then go a half turn. Next time i'd try 3/4 a turn. And they wondered why that Catalina burned valves, LOL!!!

    Well, OK, that was over 40 years ago, so I guess I had the model year wrong. I just remember that it seemed odd at the time. This was in the '60's, and I was used to 12v negative ground. It had to be jump-started frequently, and you always had to be paying attention when you connected the cables.
