the amp gage has 2 poles
charge in and charge out
there is two connections on alt one lge and one small i assume lge dia wire goes to batt pos and small dia wire goes to ameter plus side
the large wire will go to the amp meter
then,,,from the amp meter to the battery
the large wire is the charge wire
the small one is either the switch wire or the light wire
ok so small wire goes to on side of ign switch
if you have amp meter
you need to split thebig charge wire
it needs to reun through thegage
you are welcome
