Yes, I was wondering. My Anglia 100e is positive ground. But during a recent generator failure I needed to polarize my generator to make it Positive Ground. I was thinking why don't I leave my generator negative ground and just operate as negative ground. (that way I could have a CD player or Radio off the shelf) The question is do I have to convert any other electrical devices to be Negative ground IE Voltage Regulator, Coil etc.

Unless you have a radio, the only other thing I can think of that cares is the coil. You don't have to replace it but you do need to reverse its low tension wires. They could be marked + and - but more likely CB and SW.

If there is a clock that would have to be changed too.
