Re: [DML] Why Volts gage not Amps?

Like most of your daily collection of mails I don't really get
what you wanna tell us.

The regulator is not internally, at least it can be swapped without 
opening the housing. Once the alternator is out, it takes a minute to 
uninstall the regulator !

The Alternator produces 13.8V or 14.4V not 13.5V.
It generates as much current as it can to keep the 13.8V(14.4V),
the limit is the rating that is discussed very often here.
If a battery is dead - it can't hold the charge anymore, but the 
alternator still is ok.

Mikes answer was the best so far.
