Too Funny, I don't know if you guys are old enough to remember but back in the late 60's We used to see batteries hooked up backwards a lot. Back then with a generator most things worked OK. Remember having to Polarize the field by jumping the voltage regulator?? Just a few years prior all the cars were wired with a positive ground so the Old Timers were used to that. We used to notice it right off on a scope the coil ossilations were upside down the same as when the coil is wired backwards. Anyway just some Old Fogey input!!! hahaha
