Ammeter

On my son's 68 Mustang both leads coming from the ammeter on the dash are connected to the power terminal on the starter motor relay, which, I would think, is the reason that there is no movement of the needle on the ammeter. Checked the shop manual and this is also what is shown on the electrical diagram.
How can this be?

I've got a Ford Factory manual set on early Bronco. I'll see what I can find in there and get back to you tomorrow.

Ammeter looks like (on the Bronco) it connects to the Bat terminal on the Alternator (this same wire is connected to ignition switch)and the other to the "S" post on the solenoid. If a shunt type ammeter is used, an additional wire runs, in tandem, from the "S" post directly to the battery post of the alternator.

If you wish, send me a fax number and I will send diagram.
Sorry it took so long for me to reply. I hope this helps!
