    This is my friend's car many miles away.

    Does anyone know what size the ammeter studs are? Perhaps #10? 1/4"?

    We are going to parallel the ammeter wiring (bypassing the bulk head connector).

    Thanks!

      Ammeter studs are #10. I put a jumper on the ammeter wiring right at the screws on the engine compartment side of the bulkhead connector. This keeps the ammeter studs hot (for handy 12 volt taps) yet no excessive current flow through the gauge. I put in a little round UBS port (2) with a digital volt meter I bought on e-bay for $5.00. You can see it looping around from one screw to the other (blue wire).
