    Default "I have a 1955 Chris Craft wit

    "I have a 1955 Chris Craft with a 131 HP KBL engine. I recently installed an electronic ignition and an 8 volt battery in place of the 6 volt. It starts up first time every time. My question is do I have to adjust my voltage regulator to put out 9.2 volts? It currently puts out 7.2 volts. Also, does anyone know how to adjust the voltage regulator?"

    That's a good one (and where did you find an 8 volt battery!) I'd have gone with a 12 volt system. J C Whtney still sell voltage droppers so youy can run everything on 6 volts off a 12 volt battery.
