no amps

The shop manual I have shows an ammeter but what you are describing sounds like a voltmeter. In that era when a meter was used instead of a indicator light ammeters were more common.
Try connecting another voltmeter to an ignition ON source and monitor both meters over time. It may be that the old meter is bad. Try to find a replacement. Good luck.
You may find a bad connection if you carefully disassemble the dash.
