I have a CA that has been converted, however, the battery is not charging and I feel the wiring is wrong. I have 3 or four different instructions and all are just a little bit different. Here is what I figured out so far:
Battery cable goes to starter
10 ga wire goes from starter battery connection to the pos on ammeter
10 ga wire goes from neg on ammeter to large lug on alt
16 ga wire from alt large lug to #2 plug on alt
#1 alt plug to 10 ohm resistor to pos on coil
pos on coil to Ign on ignition switch
neg on coil to distributor
acc on ignition switch to lights
does it seem like I am missing anything????/
Also, I would like to put in a voltmeter instead of an ammeter, how?
I have read where an ignition ballast resistor is needed to reduce 12v to 6v for coil.
I would also like to have a warning light to indicate whether the alternator is working or not.
