Ammeter on C11 for French Market
« on: May 23, 2020, 01:34:27 pm »
Hello, thank you for accepting me as a member. I a trying to help out a French man who has a C11 from 1952, in France it is called a C11 SL. He has bought a new ammeter and a new switch but wants to know what the part attached to his old switch is, and if it's available new. I have looked into it but can't see anything like it and I don't really know what it does. A picture is attached.
The wiring diagram seems to show something in this area (highlighted in green in the attachment) but again I'm unsure what it is.
Many thanks in advance for any help or advice you may be able to  offer!

It looks to  be the charging light for a Red Spot ammeter. If it's not repairable, or a replacement ammeter without a light is being used, then the wires can be removed or taped up out of harm's way.

If he has the rest of the old ammeter, or most of it, they can be repaired and have a high value. Don't let him throw it away.

Thank you very much for your reply, that sounds like a plausible scenario. I have asked the man for a photo of the front of his ammeter and will add it to this post when I receive it.
Best regards

These pictures of a red spot ammeter front and back might be helpful?
