1928 Chrysler Generator Cutout Amperage?

The cutout for the generator was originally a Delco Remy but other 6 volt units can do the job.  However, there seems to be amperage differences in their construction.  What "capacity" for lack of a better term is correct?

So what amperage is the 265-B rated for?  I found this on an old AACA post, but 0-3.0 AMPS, how can that be right?

Steve, the Delco cutout relays 265-B to V have the same specs. The 265-A & 265-W are different.

Specs for the 265-B to V :

Contact gap is .020"

Air gap is .015"

Cut-in volts 7.0-7.5

Cut-out amperes 0-3.0

My guess is that 3 amps is the minimum current let through by the relay. Experience with three different D-R relays and generators indicate that maximum output on the 28 era is around 16 amps, not much compared to maybe 35 amps on 10 years younger models. But it will suffice unless you do prolonged nighttime driving, then LED bulbs or a larger generator is needed.
