It is great to have Theo and others too but Theo does have a lot of knowledge
about several subjects and it is nice to have him and others of his caliber in
our group. Electricity(ac or dc) is unforgiving and hooked up wrong- well it
just travels fast- 60 cycles on ac and directly to the ground thru the clock
for example and if I accidently put the wires on wrong, Lucas smoke appears so
fast you might use profane language even if you serve the Lord daily. I suppose
my point is that we are a lucky bunch to have so many intelligent Tiger owners
amongest our group. My donation for the day.

I dont remember my VIN or my TAC numbers but just for the record and once only,
I do own both.

So long as Ron puts the ammeter into the circuit in the right place, the
alternator light won't factor in... if you were to do the wiring as noted in
the Mk1A diagram, where the fused but unswitched circuits are on the opposite
side of the ammeter from the rest of the alternator and 12V 'hot' stuff, you
may see some odd behavior, especially if the ammeter connections were at all
