A previous owner of my car apparently thought it was a good idea to rewire the
ammeter directly from the battery stud on the starter solenoid into the main
harness, and not use a fuse or circuit breaker. The battery power wire at the
back of my alternator came out of the crimp connector (also done by the p.o.
when he switched from generator to alternator) and shorted out, causing the
ammeter to act as a fuse. I need to know if anyone has a company they
recommend for rebuilding the ammeter, as I like to have all my original parts
working, and then I really need to find one meant for alternators with the
higher amp readings. I have installed a 40 amp circuit breaker in line and
bypassed the ammeter for now.
