Ok so i go this new alternator.
*its a Delco alt. at 2000rpm (idle) it puts out "160 amps" they claim, and its 14.4v i believe. i want to test this.
sorry for the bad quality, they were taken with a camrea phone (not mine) and are the only pics ive taken at the moment. ill have more pics later with the metering.
so i was wondering how to measure the voltage and amperage *CORRECTLY* i have a DMM with all the little settings, a big circular knob in the middle. its yellow.
yea, looks like this one;
i was thinking id hook it up the the +\- but what settings do i use to test the voltage? and the amperage?
is it safe to test the amperage? (i think i can do the voltage with no problems, just double checking)
