The gauge should come with instructions on hook up. You can also visit their website for instructions in .PDF (Adobe Acrobat Reader) format. Basically, the ammmeter should be wired between your positive side of the battery and the battery terminal on your fuze block.
The ammeter and wire should be about 10 amps more than the capacity of your alternator output. Usually 10-gauge wire will work but make sure it's a premium grade wire.
