I’m not sure about the regulators used in the Auto-Lite systems, but the old Delco-Remy regulators, if you adjust them to turn them up, tightening the screw bends a tab, and it can’t be turned back down. The screw just backs away from the tab, leaving it where it was. BW
Had a 47 CJ2a in high school. Starting problems came up and as my Dad sold batteries in his store I got an 8 volt for my Jeep. Got the regulator turned up. Had to put a resistor on the head lights as they kept burning out. The 8 volt solved the starting problem but caused other problems. Checking out the starter connections should have come first then the starter and generator/regulator should have been checked. The Jeep was 16 years old and had a hard life on a farm before I got it. It was an education and lots of fun.
My brother and I were practically raised in our grandfathers ‘48 2A, his one and only vehicle. A daily driver, hunting, fishing, and camping jeep. During the winter months when the it would get unusually cold we would pull the battery and take it into the house so the cold weather wouldn’t ‘kill it’. He installed an 8 volt battery. I can’t say if it helped or not. This Jeep in the three years I have owned it has displayed no electrical issues. I did replace a badly needed wiring harness. And it does not get driven much at night.
Well I’m back to my shed project, putting some metal roofing on. Are you folks out west and other parts experiencing high framing timber prices? It is unreal here.
So if lumber is up, replacement cost is up which in turn means home insurance is going up---------as usual. Fires out west burning up all those homes, means huge shortages of materials to repair homes which means huge rise in insurance. They most likely will share the west coast with the rest of us. Spread the wealth/ insurance. medical is also up. insurance only knows how to go up, not down.
Real estate is crazy in the southeast. Mountain and lake homes and cabins are on the market for approximately two days. Real estate is being purchased sight unseen depending on the inspection, people are receiving unsolicited offers for their property.

schimms15: Popped the hood on the crawler to check anti freeze. Glad I did. Was only good to 10F. Drained radiator. Refilled with -45F. Ran 30 minutes. Parked it for the season.
