Clearing up the amp gauge output question. An amp gauge is measuring the power flowing through it. it is polarized so the current flowing into the battery from the alternator (in this case) moves the needle to the right (charge) direction. When the lights are on, and the tractor is not running, the amps are flowing out of the battery, and the needle moves left, discharge. There is no standardization on the markings (if any) on the meter. If it was originally positive ground with the amp meter doing as above, the meter leads need to be moved to the opposite terminals to be correct with a negative ground. The battery is connected to the amp meter with a heavy wire from the solenoid connection coming from the battery. This gives the amp meter a connection to the battery non ground terminal. The other amp gauge terminal is considered the load side (or output side). I am making a diagram and will post it later tonight here and in the parts and pieces. Jim
