How do you increase a voltage regulator from a 6v generator up to 8v to charge an 8v battery?

Without knowing what you have for a regulator, I can't say this will help. I did one last spring for a friend on his old antique boat. It is a 6v system which we changed to 8v (positive ground at that).
This regulator is on a generator, not alternator, probably same as you, basically a small metal box with a relay inside. The premis of this regulator is the spring tension is just so that at about 7.5 to 8 volts, it would trip and disconnect the generator. Simply adjust the tension so it trips at a higher voltage. You will need a very accurate volt meter, preferably digital. Also remember your target isn't actually 8 volts, 10 is probably close enough. 8.8 volts is static charge, I think 9.2 is operating charge so 9.6 or so would be peak voltage under charge (a 12V battery will show 14.4 sitting and about 15 while under charge)..
This worked great for us, doesn't show signs of boiling the battery but does keep it at peak..

How do you set up a timing belt on a 1.4 8v 1994 astra?

  Answer   Turn the crankshaft until it is at the #1 TDC mark. Turn the camshaft until the dot or line is aligned with the mark on the crank pully. Each manufacturer

What is better 8V or 16V engine?

Obviously 16v. The number in the name is the amount of cylinders, while the "v" is the engine configuration. So 16v is better because it has 2 times as many cylinders. Usually

Can a 12v battery be charged by 6v supply?

No, you need at least 12v to charge 12v. Most alternators charge at 13-14 volts.

What is the total voltage if a 12v battery 6v battery and 2.5v battery are connected in parallel?

  There is no answer to this question. It could be anywhere between 2.5V and 12V. If you connected them in series the answer would be 20.5V, in parallel the higher voltage

What voltage is a lawn tractor battery-6v 0r 12v?

Although it really depends on the model, most are 12V.   Do You Have The Old battery how many cells does it have,most 6volts have 3cells and 12volts have 6.It all depend o

Can your charge a 12V battery with a 6V charger?

No. A 12 v battery will actually have a charged peak voltage of 13.54v or 13.58v. A six volt charger will have around a max 7.5v voltage. The 6v charger will think the battery

If you double the applied voltage 2v to 4v and 4v to 8v how many times does the power increase how and by which formula?

Lets take the basic case of if you have a 2V battery with a resistor going from the positive terminal to the negative one. V = i*R and P = V*i are the two equations that you n
