That IS very cool , and you are correct Kenny, it must be grounded to read voltage. I have both on my diesel.

Very clever belt brackets, those are way cool. I think a volt meter shouldn't be in line with the generator, just reading voltage from the battery. I think one side should be grounded. And I do like your shin protector, that will still hurt but shouldn't take as much hide off. Looking great as usual, Ray. Thanks for sharing all your builds.

I did some playing around with the volt meter today just to make sure I understand how it works.
I hooked it up to the switch and grounded the other terminal and it worked just fine.

However, I've decided to leave the amp gauge on the tractor because that is most likely what would have been used on it back in the 40's or 50's.

Great setup Ray, looks like it will all work out better. Keep up the great fab work.

Glad the volt meter worked for you. I agree on the amp gauge, though. That time period would make it more normal.

I think you were trying to have the current pass through the voltmeter like the ammeter does. But the volt meter is just a probe, cant pass current through it
