Re: Alternator wiring issue...

as you can see I'm not much of an architect/lol but if you can figure this out and wire it the same I think you will be very satisfied with the charging system. Remember the important thing is that your shunt is wired on the wrong side of your field/therefore it cannot read voltage drop which is the way that your internal regulator is supposed to work. It is being fooled because the field is wired directly to battery positive. It cannot sense how much voltage you are using. Therefore if you wired to ignition switch it will not only read the requirement but also show a discharge when appropriate on the amp usage gauge . CaptG
