Additional Information

This is an optional version of Part# 5016ES. It has a LED lit Ford script face that uses asimple connection to the tail light terminal of the Model T light switch.

This Illuminated model is supplied with a voltage dropping resistor for use on 12V systems but is ready to go for 6V systems.

Built exactly to Ford dimensional drawings this very accurate ammeter is a faithful reproduction of the typical “Large Diameter” 1919-1925 Ammeter, except it have the LED lit face plate. It has a Ford Script, 20-0-20 scale dial.

It features a "steady as a rock" D'Arsonval meter movement designed for rugged applications. It does NOT bounce when the T hits a "bump" in the road keeping a steady reading. Better than the original specification of 5% accuracy, this ammeter features 1.5% full scale accuracy to allow precise adjustment of the Ford charging system.

  • Rugged D'Arsonval Movement
  • 1.5% Full Scale Accuracy
  • Steady Readings Even on Rough Roads

NOTE: This ammeter is not recommended for use with an alternator. Use part # 5016-6V or 5016-12V

Questions and Answers
Why is this ammeter not reccommended for use with an alternator?

There are alot of alternators for model T's that produce more than 15amps and they were damaging the ammeters. Also when cars changed over to alternators they tended to use volt meters instead of ammeters to make sure the charging system is working properly.
