The Ammeter is usually wired in series on the Charge wire from the Regulator's B+ on one side and the wire on the other side of the gauge goes to the Battery + terminal.  So it is in series in your charge wire. Make sense??

Is it necessary to put a fuse between the starter button/solenoid post and the ammeter?  Some tractors have this.  I do not see one on the parts list. Thanks

If you have a big starter button, the BIG batt cables go directly thru that and not thru the switch and might not even have regulator??  No selonoid then either?  Meter just runs off a plus battery cable and is usually 10gauge, the -side goes to a key switch or other common junction and other wires go to the items to be powered by battery. Usually in a way that it is not on till switch is turned on.

It has a voltage regulator.  I think the big starter button functions kind of like a "manual" solenoid.  Starter button and key switch are seperate
