I have a 73 cherokee challenger and noticed on the last flight that the amp meter had pegged.
(all the way to the "charged side". ) I terminated the flight and had the altenator checked out
and it checked out fine. I would guess that because the needle is pegged to the charging side
(not the zero side) that the wires leading to the meter are OK. has anyone had this problem or
any ideas as to the cause?
thanks. Andrew
