I only occasionally lurk over there now; a few members are perversely useless, and a big percentage just dash on, ask a simple question that has been answered 20 times, then dash off. I poured real effort into some of my posts and many of the 'community' couldn't be bothered to read. After too many "what tires fit?" posts and a certain member's baiting queries, I bailed... I found that the number of posts per week that actually interest me over there is around 2. Lots of good info in the old posts, but you have to dig through too many "I bought a 60s van, how can I make it as safe as a modern Honda?" I-D-10-T-S. While updating the amp gauge, go with the electronic regulator that matches a later, higher amp alternator or (gasp) an internal regulated alt. The old school points type regulators can be made to function well, but it's a dying art and not equal to higher output charging systems.
