Re: amps to volts



Their page does not mention converting the stock MOPAR amp meter to a VOLT meter.  As you probably know, the stock AMP meter has the full alternator current output running through it, and a VOLT meter merely taps into any ignition hot wire and has virtually no current running through it.  Converting the '63 Fury ammeter, like my '64 Dart ones, requires replacing the meter in the dash cluster and rewiring of the charging circuit to remove the high current path through the stock ammeter which is no longer needed.  There are several articles on the web about ways to do this.  Here's one:
http://www.madelectrical.com/electricaltech/amp-gauges.shtml
Note, this article calls for simply bypassing the ammeter which leaves a non functional gauge in your dash cluster.  There are VOLT meters that will fit into the place where the ammeter was in the stock cluster. 
There are folks who make the voltmeter gauge face look like the original ammeter, but with voltage markings.  It looks like some of my old bookmarks have expired or maybe those folks have refocused their services.

More research is needed.

Upgrading my '63 Fury and need to change my AMP gauge to a Voltmeter.  Does anybody know where I might find a volt meter to fit in my Amp meter gauge port in my instrument panel. . . .or of somebody who does this kind of gauge "conversion" work?

Thanks.
