Pretty much have finished a '25 Tudor, see photo, and the ammeter doesn't work. I'd like to find a working ammeter that isn't new so it would match the patina of the car. A PM is fine. Thanks

John I have both the original small Amp Gauges and the large Amp Gauge. I believe you take the small one, am I right.

26-27 take the large ammeter unless they have been converted to the small with an adapter ring, if I'm not wrong.

John, post a picture of you dash panel and that should let us know which panel you have. It should be the larger amp. gauge, but one never knows what has been done to the car since it was built!!!

'mornin' Dave. I measured the opening for the ammeter and it's just over 2.3 inches across the face of the gauge and a picture is attached. I had a new ammeter that I installed but it doesn't work plus doesn't match the patina of the car. If you have an old, working ammeter please send me a PM with contact info and I'll get back to you. Thanks, John Mays

Thanks Steve. I have that on my eBay "Watch List". Looks just like what I'd like but I want to know if it works before buying it. I'm pretty short on electrical knowledge---is an ammeter easy to fix if it doesn't work? Thanks
