What output amps is your dynamo rated at? This will influence the ammeter reading. The regulator should control the voltage and current to the battery and keep it from overcharging. It is not unusual for the ammeter to see up to 30 amps (max).


Please remember to rate this solution.

Why won't my mg zr start?


you may have sucked up dirt from the fuel tank when it ran it of gas. replace the fuel filter to see if this works. also the fuel pump may have a plugged pickup filter on the pump itself or the pump may have just died, not supplying the proper pressure in the system.

Mg metro alternator


Only needs two wires, run a 40 amp cable from the large terminal on the alternator marked +, direct to the positive terminal on the battery or to the battery supply feed to the starter (which ever is easier). Then run a wire from the terminal marked 'ind' to a 5watt bulb, other side of the bulb needs to be wired to an ignition live feed. That's makes it the charge indication light. You need to fit this light, without it the alternator will not charge!!!! Light will come on when you switch the ignition on, and go out when the engine is started. Put a volt meter across the battery, should get a reading of 13.5 to 14.5 volts with engine running. Good Luck.

I have a car on the dashborad it reads sprite on the hupcaps the letter AH on the registration the make MG WHAT KINK OF CAR IS THIS 1967


The mg sprite and the austin healy sprite came off the same productin line, there are sutle diffrences that allow you to tell which car is which, the easist way to find out if it is a healy or mg is to try the mg register with the chassis number and engine number, they will tell you the original color interior and who it was sold to and where.

Car is overheating but is holding fluids


Waterpump, loose/broken hose, or head gasket. Waterpump is most likely, unless recently changed. Make sure you get the Timing Belt done, unless it's also been done recently, if the water pump is replaced.
Good luck,
TD
