Re: Rotisserie / Spit

Thanks for taking the time to reply that’s very kind of you, I don’t have the space for an outside framed one like that, as it moves along the floor from side to side. I think I need a spit that stays in one place, which the vehicle is rotated on.

Rotisserie / Spit

Hi all Well I’ve managed to buy a LEMON in the shape of a 1961 Splitscreen from Canada that needs a lot more work than I’ve hoped for, I think I’d need to put this on a Spit, does anyone have a diagram that I can make one from, it’ll be great help thanks. Craig Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

This is an alternator looks like a Dynamo, dose it need an external regulator?

Image

Has anyone fitted one of these alternators, if I connect it up it gets hot, I guessing it needs an external regulator as it’s the same daze as the Dynamo.
If it dose can I use the Dynamo regulator

It’s an alternator that’s made to look like a Dynamo, is polarising when you switch terminals over & would you have any idea why it’s getting hot.
I’ve tried wiring straight to battery but it still gets hot

Re: 1964 13 window deluxe

Nice bus
There’s not much difference in an earlier bus unless you want a barn door, you maybe getting rid of a perfectly nice ride & giving yourself loads of hassle or work. Like they say “if it ain’t broke don’t fix it”
