Sorry to digress from electrical stuff.
I said I was just a kid. LOL When it comes to electrical stuff, I know you don't like amp gauges. I use them in my cars, and have them rebuilt to handle the load. Unless someone ask me to put one in their car I use a voltmeter. I like the amp gauge over the volt meter because it takes to long to tell me if the system is charging or not. I guess if it was good enough for Ford until a few years ago, it's good enough for me. I do cover the terminals so if something fell across them, I would not have the forth of July under my dash. I also run 8 GA. wire on the circuit. I think I have heard all the pros and cons of each one, I prefer amp. Other than that every time we have been on the same thread we have been pretty much in agreement. You know as well as I, that with all this after market boards and that, they all feed things from different sources. When you use a factory wiring diagram for a newer car, they are not for your average person just trying to fix something, they show all the insides of relays, switches, I even have a hard time with them. I went to school almost 50 years ago, they still used tubes back then. I didn't keep up with it, I ran a machine shop instead. That's why I said I don't work on new cars, that's 1960 or newer. I have wired a lot of cars but none newer than a 1957 T-bird. Were cool I like to work the trouble out not just throw things at it, and I believe you do the same, I think wiring is the most hated thing on building a car to a lot of people. I have wrote things down that you have said on things I didn't know, or knew and forgot, And I know I have posted things after you that I had added things, There's always more than one way to get there.
