Would like to install Oldsmobile 985244 radio in 1950 GMC 150 with 6 volt positive ground. Looks like aftermarket bezel, knobs etc should fit but question on electrical side. In replacing electrolytic capacitor does ends need to be revearsed due to now having positive ground. I know polarity doesn’t matter on other caps and original vibrator.
mgs2253, welcome to the Stovebolt. The operation of the electrolytic is the same whether it is a positive or negative ground radio. The only thing that changes is the polarity of the vibrator, if it is a new solid state one. Good luck on your installation.
Thanks Fred, Doing a recap on radio and from reading tip page on JustRadio.com saw that replacement electrolytics have a positive end and negative end. Since the Oldsmobile was negative ground I assumed on the GMC the capacitor ends would have to be reversed because now have positive ground.
