Wow, 2012. Good thread, and worthwhile to bring it to the top again.

My '82 has the battery symbol for this gauge, which applies to either an ammeter or voltmeter. No need for any additional lettering.

I would also suggest, if you do this conversion, you may as well complete the gauges' voltage regulator replacement too. Maybe $1 in parts (plus shipping), and keeps your new voltmeter from bouncing in time with the factory mechanical voltage regulator (the CVR). Plus it's safer for your gauges.

Here's a parts list - https://www.mouser.com/ProjectManager/ProjectDetail.aspx?State=EDIT&ProjectGUID=53f93c34 -4415-4d9b-8d43-16b4e08b2685 You'll need these plus some wire, coupling compound, connectors of your choice, and assembly.
