- 1970 Skylark
I was just getting ready to install and ammeter gauge on my Skylark. I have a tendency to overthink myself. The instructions are really poorly illustrated and written. This Skylark uses a Generator with a voltage regulator. Instead of using and alternator with a Zener Diode for voltage regulation. I was a D.C. Crane repairman and Electrical/Mechanical repairman for 30 years. Now I am just totally confused...LOL. I had thought of taking the idiot light wire, cutting it and running in series with the ammeter. What is the correct way to hook this device up? My son was supposed to help but he is no where to be found. There are several different ways to hook this up according to YOUtube.....but they all are newer model cars. Can someone provide me with best and easiest way to hook this thing up??? At 65 years old...I cant creep or crawl under dashboards, inside motor or under motor like I used to.....otherwise I will spend considerable time doing likewise....my motto...."there is always a solution to the problem, just keep digging."
