All, this is on a Super A rather than a Cub, but I posted it anyway because I figure what I need to know would apply to a Cub too. Anyway, you have to understand that I don't do electricity well. I can wire up a single pole switch or a recepticle, but as far as where the current comes from, where it goes, and WHY, I am clueless. It works by magic as far as I'm concerned. (Near as I can tell, that's also how carbs and magnetos work
) Anway I am getting ready to re-wire my Super A that has been painted. Everything is new except for the 4-position light switch. I have cleaned it and it seems to be in good working order.
My FIL is pretty good with electronics and so forth, and has a voltmeter and other electrical test equipment. What I want to know is, once I have everything hooked up, what should the voltage, etc. read at various points in the system? In other words, what should I touch with the voltmeter, and when I do what should it read to verify everything is working?
The 'ol Super A has never wanted to charge just right in the last 20 or so years. I am sure it was just poor connections, poor grounds, and age. But it has given so much trouble in the past, I want to make sure I can troubleshoot it from A-Z before I start connecting things......
