amp gauge/charging system
|bill baker||My amp gauge is broken on my Farmall M. It's converted to 12 volt. It's not charging , and before I take off the alternator ,could it(amp gauge)be the reason ? I'm going to get a new one anyway. Thanx for any help
|Cyrush||It could be,!
Amp gauges are usually used on generator systems and on alternator systems a battery voltage gauge is preferred!!
|Butch||If the circuit inside the ammeter fails and is open it would be a reason for not charging.
|Butch||The ammeter will operate ok with the alternator but I do agree with using a voltmeter.
If the right person reads this post he will put of a fight about that statement I just made.
He has done it before.
Search Ammeter vs. Voltmeter and read the post by Auto-Meter Tech Tips and make up your own mind.
I'm going to stay out of this one now and just read posts. LOL
|tomboy||Have you actually tested the alternator to see if its working or not? Its easy, start the engine, then at mid throttle place the blade of a screw driver to the round metal plug at the rear of the alt, if you get a good magnetic pull, its working.
|gerald white||hi. there is a unit for ((clipping on)) to charging circuits and costs £20 no wiring needed, these are 0-30 amp and 0-75 amp. these are very usefull for quick tests and don't need to be polarized and are small enough to put in your pocket. you can get these from sealey tools. gerald
