Hi there. I'm hoping someone can help me understand better. I'm looking to keep the stock headlight on my 1979 Motobecane 50V (12 volt), but add a 12v DC aftermarket LED taillight/brake light since my original is pretty much destroyed.
In the existing AC circuit, does power come off the stator and complete the circuit through the "ground". If I introduce a rectifier, am I interrupting that feed from the stator at the rectifier and return to ground? Then DC positive to lamp, DC negative to ground, or direct to negative on lamp, or does it matter? Hopefully the attached marked up diagram will better illustrate my questions.
