Hi.

I dont seem to have one on my 1963 car. It has an engine in at the moment which i put in and it runs but i really have to rev it to keep it going.

I think the carb needs stripping but i couldnt help thinking that it needs a voltage regulator.

Do all karmann ghias need them or do 12v alternator conversons not need them.

If it does need one and doesnt have it howdoes it affect the car.

Thanks alot

Alan

You probably do not need one, as most alternators sold any more are internally regulated.

If the alternator that is on there has just two connections on top - B+ and D+ (warning light and power output) then it has it's regulator built-in and doesn't need anything else. All it needs is the warning light to be hooked up for inital excitation current to get the unit to begin charging.
