Be sure to check out the Amsoil Section for info on gear lubes and other stuff that will make your Mog or Pinz perform better and use less gas! Proven since 1972 - the FIRST in synthetics in the USA.

Also look for the Batteries and Wires section for a laugh and to learn about vehicular electricity!

Legal disclaimer!

In this age of a lawyer behind every tree, You hereby understand you are on your own when you start wiring. I will not be responsible for your goof ups, failure to understand directions, electricity, your use or misuse of any info posted on this or any other web site, or anywhere else, or your horoscope that day that said "beware of electrons today"!

If anything at all goes wrong, and I do mean anything, you hereby understand you are on your own!

Here's a crude schematic wiring diagram I whipped up in Paint to illustrate how to get 12 volts from 24. This will not affect the charging of the batteries as the voltage regulator will see a 24 volt load across the battery bank.



The resistors R1 and R2 can be headlights, or any other 12 volt device that can live with a good amount of current.

You have to make a voltage divider with 2 equal resistances that are able to carry the current you plan to draw.

Be sure to make a list of, and label which circuit is the one with the separate ground. If you were to forget and wire a 12 volt device from the plus end of it to chassis ground it would be hit by 24 volts. Not good!

You have to make a voltage divider with 2 equal resistances that are able to carry the current you plan to draw.



All new Saturn cars inadvertantly have a voltage divider in the form of the daytime running lights. They run the high beams in series to reduce their lumen output for day use, which cuts the voltage across each to 6 volts.

You can do the same with a Pinz 24 volt system by wiring 2 12 volt headlights in series. They will run at full brightness. You can now pull off 12 volts across either. You will be able to use chassis ground for the first light from ground. The other will require a separate ground wire.

I would put one or 2 high current drawing 12 volt accessories on the one with the separate ground wire so you don't have to run a bunch of wires.

Then put all the low current draw accessories on the one with chassis ground.

One headlight or the other will burn brighter as the current draw from the accessories will be uneven, but who cares if you just use them as driving lights?

If you don't use headlights, you can just use 2 large wirewound resistors.

To help out with heat in the winter you could use 2 12 volt resistance heaters.reat deal of current through it.
