Re: Ammeter

If you're not in a hurry to purchase one, original ammeters come up on ebay every three weeks or so. Check out the judging standards so you'll know what is original and what is not.

Re: Best cooling fan for best cooling?

Unless you go with some aftermarket electric or multiblade nylon fan, the aluminum 2 blade replacement fan works best(IMHO). It pulls more air through the radiator than the 4 blade Model A steel fan.
