Conversion 12 V
« on: February 28, 2012, 04:25:01 AM »

I like that my cars look in original conditions. In this case, the DeSoto was converted to 12 V. The engine works wonderful, but the solenoid is offline (I don´t know if it works, probably yes).
Thanks

Welcome to the forum eldany1929.
 
I have done a lot, but a 6 to 12 conversion isn't one of them, sorry. I do think for a beginning, remove the solenoid in order to test it. There are a couple Desoto cars in the forum, they might have a good idea. Given it is converted to 12V, it may be the simple act of changing the selonoid or starter itself to a newer one that fits to get away from the 6v components.

Just be careful if you find one.  Make sure you get the appropriate grounding.  Is it still positive ground?

It has negative ground, but I guess that when they made the conversión to 12 V they changed all. Thanks

12V change would be 1956.  I believe it was done in January.  But back then, they didn't introduce the new models until November.  Too long ago to remember

Thank´s. I was reading about  transmission (Servive Reference Book - Chrysler) and I could understand the system. It is necessary that everything is connected. I could make a relay 6v circuit with the same function (I used 2 relays). I will use a 12 v battery with 6v output.
Thank´s again
