What is the voltage of Hotchkiss meters?

Post by gpwgyrene » Fri Jan 15, 2010 6:45 am

Recently I purchased some electronic meters and a speedo that were listed as "Hotchkiss MB" Are these 12 or 6 volt?

Semper FI!

Well.... you won the lottery...

The Hotchkiss M201 was made in all three: 6 Volt, 12 Volt AND 24 Volt!

Hi All

From 1955 to 1960 Hotchkiss M201 were 6 volts made after 1960 24 volts made. French Army converted many 6 volts to 12 volts during use of these jeep.

There is many interesting infos on Andy Carter and jean-Louis Martin web site: http://www.hotchkissm201.com/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; principaly at "CHIFFRES DE PRODUCTION" on JLM's page.
