73-74 were the yrs for ammeter, 75 started the VOLTS word on the gauge....ask me how I know LOL
Do you need the ammeter or you want to get the voltmeter working?
The Voltmeter hooks up different from teh Voltmeter, I can help you getting the voltmeter working.
I'd prefer a voltmeter, but the truck is wired for an Ammeter and I don't want to put much time or effort into this truck. But I'll either need a housing and wiring circuit panel with the ammeter or to change the wiring to make the voltmeter work if it isn't already damaged from being hooked up wrong.
I would like to know how....
Well the ammeter is supposed to have the main wire going thru it before it goes to any consumption (series), so usually there is a thick red wire that comes thru the firewall to the ammeter, back to the alternator.
The voltmeter goes parallel and is a regular thin guage that just hooks one line to the positive and one line to the frame or ground.
I will try and find pics is I still have them, I also will try and find the GM shematics for the electrical.
