Hi, my amp meter does not move. It was working.I get voltage coming from generator, trying to follow wiring but it's difficult. Is there a simple way to locate
issue?

I don't believe it's the gauge but some other issue.

Thank you,

Kenny

Hello,
There must be a bad or loose connection. I would make sure all the grounds are good do a visual inspection of as many as you can find make sure the one that goes from the engine to the body is good. On a ride that old there maybe more than one. Then if you can get another person to help set them in the car running and watching the gauge then you go through and just start touching and moving the harness and the wires around and see if you can get the gauge to move even just a little. Has any work been done lately, any jump starts?
Let me know,
Tom
