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.

All cars since the 1950's use a Negative ground, this includes Mecury. Negative is the black cable and the battery is marked NEG (-)

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,
