Hook up ammeter on '63 Chevy.

Hello everyone, my name is Pete and I live in the Kansas City area. I just purchased a '63 Impala SS. I was a hotrodder in my youth and did a lot of work on my cars. Its been 30-35 years but I am reenergized by this old Chevy and seem to remember most of what I knew so far. I have a question to start out with. The car has a 3 gauge set but the ammeter is not hooked up. I cannot remember how to hook one up. I know you have to get the right wire and run it through the meter. This is a 327 300hp with stock wiring except it has HEI distributor. Any help is appreciated and I look forward to spending many hours on this site when I am not working on the car.

Hey man I feel your pain I've had the same problem before. My meter runs from my Alternator and my Battery I'll see if I can find some specs about your setup but I figured that should help you a little bit there.
