Hi. most people wire volt meters to their alternators, this can be done by simply taking a feed off an ignition live feed, and to an earth. If you wish to wire a ammeter then it needs to be wired in series at the generator output. Make sure you have a decent quality one, as if it fails you will have no charging.
Haynes or Chilton manual should have the wiring diagrams. Your local library might have the right repair manual where you could make copies of the wiring. No such thing as a colored diagram, but any wiring diagram would have all the wires color-coded. Good luck. The wiring on your '68 would be super-simple compared to today's vehicles.
what jam jar are you fixing up ,,well anyway a morris like this with ammeter is no problem ,the feed wire from the battery positive terminal ,the amp meter goes in this cable ,not the big one to the starter motor but the thinner one ,if it doesnt have one then the feed will pick up from the starter solonoid under the bonnet ,right what else do you need to know ,how to build and set up the points ,the carb ,tappet settings ,how to convert to negative earthfor the sound system to work

Disconnect the negative battery cable.
Remove the accessory drive belt.
Drain and recycle the engine coolant.
Remove the radiator.
NOTE: If your vehicle is equipped with air conditioning, refer to the information regarding the implications of servicing your A/C system yourself. Only an MVAC-trained, EPA-certified, automotive technician should service the A/C system or its components.
Remove the A/C condenser.
Raise and safely support the vehicle securely.
Disconnect the coolant inlet and outlet hoses from the generator.
Detach the electrical connections from the generator. The regulator, the battery output, and the heated windshield (if equipped) will need to be unplugged.
Remove the generator fasteners from the generator.
Remove the generator from the vehicle.
