Andy,

There should be no reason why you can't use either a volt or amp
meter or both. They have nothing to do with the alt.

Err, ask 'em why can't You use an ammeter or voltmeter?

You can certainly use either or both with the GM 1 wire.
(or any other alt or gen I've ever seen)
Someone's either pulling Yer leg, or clueless, or something...

I'm a voltmeter man myself, but both is better.

Happy motoring,

This is totally untrue. I used a GM 1 wire alternator on my flathead with
both an ammeter and a voltmeter. The voltmeter is easy, just wire it to
anything that's hot when the ignition is on. The ammeter is pretty easy
too--just needs more wiring. Normally what you'd do is run a heavy (10 ga)
wire from the alternator to the battery side of the starter solonoid. If
you want to use an ammeter you have to run the wire from the alternator to
the ammeter which would more than likely be in the cab. Then you have to
run a wire from the ammeter to the solonoid. It's really simple.

Subject: ID tag

Hi all. I friend of mine bought a truck for parts and he
says I can now have anything that I want because he is finished
picking it apart. On the glove compartment is the ID tag that
says M100. Nice huh. Well what I want to know is if I can use
this tag to increase my Merc collection. Obviously there are no
papers. Is there a way to get paper?
Any thoughts would be much appreciated.
