Is the earth on 1954 cruiser positive or negative

Post  ivanwscully on Tue Jun 11, 2013 8:40 pm

Dear All,

I recently joined the FB owners club and I have a question relating to a 1954 225cc Cruiser. My dad is currently doing up this bike and he wants to know is the earth positive or negative in order for him to do the wiring?

Thanks very much.

Ivan

The Falcon and Merlin from the same period using a similiar system are + earth so would assume the cruiser to be the same ??

Taken from the 225 cruiser instruction book


 I'm not one to contradict John (I learned that the hard way) but this looks Neg earth to me. Unless i'm reading it wrong. 
 I'm happy to post up any other photos of pages you might find useful.
Regards
Kim

Kim,
can.t argue with that,as i said Falcon and Merlin were + earth and possibly cruiser was the same ??I did not have a cruiser wiring diagram hence the suggestion rather than a definitive answer. Obviously not,can't understand why the system on the cruiser is different,but this undeniable evidence proves it was !

Hi Kim,

Thanks very much for the wiring diagram. This is just what I wanted. My dad also says thanks. I'm living in Caversham, Reading and he lives in Kerry, Ireland.

Hi John,

Thanks also for your assistance. It seems strange that both models would have a different wiring system but there it is.

All the best for now.

Hi Ivan..No problem. I received a pile of FB booklets with my Cruiser 84 when i brought it and the 225 Instruction manual just happened to be one of them. Let me know if you need any other info and i will be happy to consult it and post photos of the relevent pages.
