Title: ammeter query
Post by: royblackburn1@btinternet. on 20 October, 2017, 17:43:15
Hi I have a 1966 lightning with Boyer Bransden ignition and modern rectifier/zener diode when I turn the ignition on  the ammeter needle goes to -3 for a couple of seconds then returns to zero is this normal or is there a fault somewhere, thanks Roy
