Ammeter 0-50-0

Recommended Posts

Probably the wrong place for this topic/post.

However, I have this one cluttering up the workshop and am open to any sensible offers via eBay. I’d love it to go to a new home.

if it’s of interest, please make an offer, whatever you feel it’s worth to you.

I have just bought a 50amp ammeter, it came without the male spade fittings. Does anyone know where the male spades can be obtained, particularly the wide ones?

Thanks

If you only want a few, I can send some to you FOC, they are the yellow crimp on type - you will need the proper ratchet type crimpers though.

Unless I have misunderstood, I think that the male spade fittings required by Graham will the the ones to be fitted onto the back of the ammeter - the TR4's wiring loom will have Lucar connectors to push onto these fittings.

Any local business which undertakes vehicle wiring will be able to supply a couple of fittings which can be connected to the screw terminals on the ammeter, providing spade connections for the car's wiring.

Near me, in Aylesbury, there is a business which does nothing other than re-wire and fix electrical problems in cars - always interesting to visit as often there are some really exotic beasts in there.  I obtained all the parts necessary to fit relays for the operation of my headlights and spotlights, thereby greatly improving the effectiveness of my lights as the poor old lighting switch was relieved of the load and volt drop was reduced!  See article in TR Action 296, March 2017.

Gentlemen,

Bob’s suggested website is just what I need.

Thanks

Graham,

i may have something knocking around. How quickly do you need them. Failing that, if you want to come over to Southam, I’ll happily crimp on some terminals for post connections as per the ammeter I recently sold to someone else. These may be safer than blade type terminals.
