Herm. I have read that the amp gauge is connected to both ends of the wire that runs from the junction block near the battery (across the radiator support) to the horn relay. It shows the voltage across this wire as an indication of charge/discharge.
If you haven't changed this wire somehow, your gauge should work like it did before.
