problem with an amperage gage.. you need to supply the back of the gage with all the amps the alternator is putting out. That is a -lot- of power in a small place, put into something that will someday burnout. At least a Voltage gage only needs a couple of slender wires, not heavy and bulky large gage wires. Much safer
