As I'm un-boxing and un-bagging the Sprite from the PO; and checking things

The "dynamo" is good. Looks like it was rebuilt at one time. I have not
done the test discussed in the past week, but from prior experience, it

corrosion like that on an electrical part before in a car. My old '56 Bel

So, is this the time to convert it to 12v NEG and get an alternator? I'm
not afraid of wiring it, just don't want to blow a tach-but then again,
there are some parts taped to the back of this one... There is no radio to
