1919 DB Amperage Gauge


Recommended Posts

Went to fire her up and everything was spinning but no spark. I have this happen before and a little twist behind the dash of the amp gauge did the trick. This time a ‘pop’ , a whiff of ozone, and the needle when hard left. Question is: Are these rebuildable? Seems like a sealed unit.

It sounds like you may have shorted the battery connection to ground via the dash if the fibre insulating washers have disintegrated.

I would recommend disconnecting / isolating the battery to avoid a fire.

The ammeter maybe repairable depending on the damaged done but these are often seen for sale on ebay or perhaps obtainable from a fellow enthusiast. (Maybe be considerably cheaper to replace rather than repair) I have spares here in Australia if you are unable to find one in your locale.
