      I used to have a '54 3100 and it would do the same thing. A friend told 
me to drive with my lights on all the time and see what happens. Well, it did 
work. As long as I had the lights on all the time the system would'nt over 
charge. It was a quick fix however, eventually I had to put on a new regulator. 
I have'nt had that problem with my '55 1st yet. Try it and see, you have'nt got 
anything to lose. But, it is not hard to replace the regulator either. Can't 
help you on the bumper bracket issue, I have'nt looked at mine in a long time. 
I'll have to take a gander soon.

Hey gang,

My system is overcharging. The needle rides clear over on charge most of the 
time. I don't want to boil the battery out. Any ideas short of replacing 
the regulator. 6v system with generator.

Also I noticed the bumper brackets for the front bumper. They appear to be 
composed of three pieces of contoured metal to attach the bumper to the 
frame. On each side one of the pieces of metal have been cut off. Any idea 
what the eliminated 3rd piece would have been used for?
