I have a old tow motor w/ a wisconsin air cooled engine . I'm looking to change the 6 volt system to 12 volt system. looking for a basic 12 volt wiring diagram for GM alt. and wisconsin parts?


to change the points to electronic you will need to get the manufacturer of the distributor and contact them for a compatible electronic kit to replace the points or replacement distributor
to fit an alternator , get one with an internal voltage regulator ( talk with an auto electrician for the best unit --it is not necessary to go big amperage units so one about 35-60 amps will suffice and cheaper as well)
wiring will be the same as will fuses (neither volt sensitive)
gauges will have to be changed to 12 volt units
bulbs changed from 6 volt to 12 bulbs and switches will be the same as they are no volt sensitive
basically the same circuit can be used and the only place to be careful is the alternator wire to the battery and the charge light or volt gauge ( auto electrician can advise here )
starter motor will have to be changed to 12 volts and you will again have to get the replacement unit from an auto electrician as the bendix pitch , movement and mounting neck will be critical
wisconsin did not make electrical components but used off the shelf companies such as delco remy, lucas , bosch, ac etc for the accessories to the engine
it is an interesting project so collect as much information from auto electricians and web sites to help you

Need vehicle emissions diagrams for 1984 Chevy S-10 w/2.8 V6, where do I find these? Vehicle runs fine but stumbles and hestitates slightly on taking off, also seems to miss on occasion(?) and fuel mpg is...


I take it that the distributor has a set of points and if so check the dwell angle to set the point gap
if it has electronic ignition check the rotor gap for the exciter and check the exciter operation
more costly parts will not solve the problem as car manufacturers use aftermarket parts in an OEM box just to inflate the price
stumbling on acceleration can be from incorrect ignition timing ( should be 12 degrees BTDC) or a problem accelerator pump/power valve in the carby
holley carbs came with different settings on the power valve and others have an adjustment on the pump linkage
hyt leads should be of high quality in the area of the insulation and plug gap should be correct
check that the coil is wired correctly and that the voltage is correct as it will be running a resistance wire from the ignition switch to the coil to reduce the 12 volts to 7.5 volts when running
low mpg is determined by driver habits but you can check the float level, cat converter for failure and blocking the exhaust and transmission changes are correct for rpms and road speed ( vacuum actuator on the transmission if auto)

Need wiring diagram '70 Chevy 2T trck w/electronic ignition conv


Make sure you give it a good tune up. Make sure that your rotor is moving when you crank it over. If it is moving then you will need to replace the distributor module.

1987 GMC Jimmy Distributor cap and Rotor replacement


A diagram may not be needed as its a reasonably easy fix to do on your own.the distributor ca p will only fit on properly one way because at the base of the cap locaters can only fit the distributor if they line up.When doing the spark plug leads do them one at a time and if nessecary write or mark leads as 1,2 etc .The rotor can only fit on one way but put a mark on the distributor to show where the rotor was pointing when you took it off and if it still points there when the new one is fitted.When changing distributor cap and leads they have to go to the correct place.Pays to mark the outside of distributor cap where the locating bits are On the new and old one.Fit the new cap and rotor then take a spark plug lead and fit to new cap 1 at a time.You can tell by lining up the marks on the outside of the distributor cap when you hold them one on top of the other.Good luck
