Reversing polarity on Jaeger amp meter?
So now that I have the 65A alternator in the truck the meter pegged at the bottom for a while there; I was concerned that the meter had gone haywire. Now I realize that it was working properly in that the alternator was charging above the (measly) 30 amps on the gauge AND it is a positive earth gauge. That is to say that it is reading backwards, upside down, whatever you want to call it, so that when it is charging, the gauge reads that it is discharging.
Now I know this is all pretty unimportant in the grand scheme of things...the Series gauges are for entertainment purposes and not for actual systems monitoring. I do wonder tho, if one can change the polarity of the reading? Would it mean switching the wires end-for-end so the "flow" is going the other way?
