Re: Installing engine gauges
You don't want an ammeter unless you get one with a remote shunt. Older engines with ammeters in their cockpits had the alternator output (i.e., charging wire) go all the way to the cockpit and then back to the batteries in very small wire. Buy a battery monitor and put a voltmeter in your cockpit.
